Making jockey seat water tight.

Instead of raising it, how about putting trunking through it.

This pipe goes all the way to the engine. Note I drilled a small hole at floor level to let the water escape.

The larger hole is for the A Frame and steering cables.

I want to keep the existing cables where they are A1an everything is underfloor so for me it would be much easier.

There is no raised lip on the seat base it's flat Dave.

In that case, that's your problem. You need to form one.

Crap picture but you can see that there is not much room to form one and the seat is very heavy so even if you could form one the repeated movement would eventually break the lip.





Looks like I will have to go with raising the hat.

How about get a piece of 1/2" marine ply, cut it to the same size as the outside of the seat base top( so you basically make a lid for the seat base) cut out the middle of the ply to give you access into the base & then screw & seal the wooden frame you have now made to the seat base. This gives you a 1/2" upstand all around the hole. Sit the seat cushion in the wooden frame. It might need tweaking, but that's the principle.
