Sterling 1408 boat sand bags ???
I have a 1408 sterling boat which I am puzzled by sand bags in the very back u shaped back seat.
My question is why is there sand bags on either side of the boat? Can I remove them as they are broken?
I have never seen sand bags enclosed under the seat of a boat
If anyone know about this or where I can find more information as to why there are installed under the riveted seat would be great
