After a frigid winter in Chicago, I am starting work on my Chesse 16 again. First- I tried to search prior comments on this but did not find any. I see on a lot of plastic/ fiberglass kayaks they have a plug at the end of the kayak to allow water out from the rear compartment. Did I miss it or is there a reason why no one recommends one on the Chesse models? SHould I install one? Second- the topic of to remove or not to remove stiches have been discussed a lot. My stitches are in place and I am about to start my fillets. The thought of heating and removing each and every stitch makes me tired, but the thought of a piece of wire poking thru and leaking makes me sick. Any words of wisdom?
