Drain holes

Hey Panic and other paddle cat owners
I talked to Richard at Hyside a couple of day ago and he said that punching holes on the sides of the cockpit was the way to go. The fabric is 2 ply there and will be less likely to rip after being punched. He said there are two ways that he thought you could go about it. First was to get a grommet set with a 1 inch punch, the other was to find a piece of 1 inch pipe that is sharpened on one end back it up with wood (or something comparable) and whack it with a hammer.

I am going to talk to my uncle who is in the steel business and see if I can borrow one of his punches. I will probably put for holes in each side at 1/4 intervals. I will let you know how it goes...

Did they mention updating their design to include this if it is such a popular request?
