Never tried it but heard it will work. I underestimated the amount of water that can come through a loose fitting like those rings ( I assume one each side on your boat ) after an hour on the water in a recent boat the loose D ring in the bow meant I had an inch of water in the back of the boat .
Of course it shouldn't be a problem if it is this on yours as they wont have water over them when in use - unless you fill the boat with water !
Has it leaked into the void when you have put it on the water ?
