Problem with new Dagger outfitting - need help
I was able to get my hands on a Dagger Kingpin Icon 6.3 for a few weeks & Im trying to get it set up for a Westwater trip in April. The number of adjustments that this boat has is incredible, but there is one thing that wont move: the seat. Per the instructions, all you have to do is loosen and remove the yellow seat knob, lift the tab from the bold, slide the seat into position, [and] replace the tab and tighten the knob. That doesnt jive.
After hours of pulling, tugging, and creating new words, the seat will not move. So I did what any reasonable kayaker would do in a dry March: I completely disassembled the kayak. It turns out that the seat is riveted to the piece that it is supposed to slide on.
So what gives? Do I have some preseason prototype, or is someone at Dagger asleep at the switch? Aside from drilling the rivet out and re-riveting the seat in place, can anyone give me any advice on how to fix this?
There is, of course, a chance that Im a complete idiot & Im just doing this wrong, but Im willing to take the chance
Please help! The guts of this boat are in a pile on the floor. Thanks.
Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.
