Drain holes in pod seats

I am getting my seats recovered at a guy that does motorbike seats and he mentioned putting some brass eyelets in the back for drainage does anyone else have any sort of drainage.
The foam is still wet now and they have been in the house for a month.

The Atlantic seats have brass eyelets fitted, I think thats more to let air in and out though.
Like bedajim said closed cell foam is what you need.

Is it "proper" marine ply?
Sealing it with G4 pond sealer will stop it rotting.
