Removable captain's chair?

I really love my flip chair captain's seat for rowing. I bet it would work pretty good for camp sitting too... How do I convert it so it's removable but still stable and flipable? I was thinking of drilling a few holes and adding some speed rail pins. Anybody done this or have a better idea?

Keep it simple. :)

I was just looking at that exact set up you described at a raft shop about an hour ago. It was a DRE frame and mesh chair and would take seconds to be removed. Looked like it would work good to me.

It's been done that way for 20+ years that I know of, it works great but you're down on the sand because the pipe sinks.

They may plugs that fit into bottom of the feet so you don't sink in the sand.

I have used my chairs on the beach but like Wild says, you sit so low I don't find it very comfortable.
