Seat Removal-Burn

Finally cracked my boat. Nice 3"er under the seat. Anybody have any tips for pulling the seat out of a Pyranha Burn? The seat is connected to the center bar between the legs and the plastic (rotomolded?) is super stout and stiff. I'm honestly not sure how I'm going to get this thing out to start working on the patching. Thanks.

gotta take out the side bolts first. The two screws with the red washers on each side. Watch for the washers and plates on the inside cause they get lost in the craziest of places. Remember what position they are in cause you will want the seat back the way you took it out. Turn the seat sideways and pull out.

There's a pdf you can download from the Pyranha website if you want visuals.

Thanks guys. It was easier than I expected. Though I remember putting the seat in being the toughest part. Greg, did you have to pull out the center beam too? I'm not sure if I'll have to or not, but it looks like it will be a bitch if I have to.
