Wet Butt!

If you are getting bored due to the global funk, perhaps you can enlighten me on a way to avoid my passengers from getting uncomfortable wet butt from sitting on a paco pad on the front of my boat. I know, itís a river and there will be water, however I wonder if there is something that people use that helps drain the water away so my passenger doesnít sit in a pool of water on the pad. We just did a cooler weather trip and she would have really liked sitting above the water. Iím thinking about a pad that can drain. Any ideas?

Stay healthy

Tda

Splash pants, bottoms of a rain suit

Quit splashing water into the boat.

That purple mat may just do the trick!

I'm planning to strap our CGear sand mat down on top of the table instead of a Paco this summer. Hoping it will still be good padding with fewer soppy rear ends. I always worry the Paco seat may get ripped away if I were to get chundered in a hole. The CGear mat has a bunch of rings that could help hold it in place. Haven't tried it yet and the outlook for getting on the water is grim.

For this very reason I use a 16"x16"x3" paco pads. It does not completely eliminate the problem but reduces it significantly.
Also dry lines.

Exactly this, spent the $100 on a tush Cush and havenít looked back. Tried several different approaches, for me as. Ugh as the wet butt, I was sick of my paco pad covering my side raises so I couldnít set my beer there. I will admit, seemed pretty silly to spend a hundo on this, but it solved the problem for me.

The wet butt terminator

I have this rope seat for sale. It attaches to a dry box and keeps ya up off the box and surprisingly dry. You just rivet it to a box.

I read a review on the purple mat that said it did not like being left in hot sun. Does anyone know if it is a water proof type of rubber or absorbent foam type?
I row a dory with a rope seat, butt will dry fast if wet (good air flow)
