Please Be Seated

The first thing I do after getting a new boat is to take the butt seat out and store it in my garage until it’s time to send the whole deal to the next owner a few years later. I guess I might be inclined to pull it out if fishing in open water or a rough day, but now that I no longer fish tournaments those days are few and far between -- which means that at best a butt seat on the front deck would get in my way and at worst it might knock me into the drink.
