Decided I wanted a drier seat, so I made a one way valve for the under seat scuppers.
2 x Mitre 10 medalist door stoppers

2 small rubber balls from a $2 shop that will fit loosely in stopper tube but not into the plastic base.

drill a 20mm hole in stopper top and base put ball in close together and slide stopper first into scupper until plastic base is flush with seat floor.ImageImageImageImage

Truely inspired! My scupper holes are bigger so I use 2 tennis balls, tied to together with string so I only have to chase one more thing when I turtle.
Are you going to make them for Landcruisers too?
Cheers
