The X seat is only for 2017 models,guessing they don't have any of those for the Saturday sale.

Speaking of Malibu Kayaks... I have a 2015 X-Factor and am fairly satisfied with it, with the exception of it taking on a gallon or so of water every time a heavy wave crashes over the front hatch, typical on beach launches or landings. Thinking about permanently closing off the front hatch by sealing it with some silicone.

Does anyone have any experience with dealing with this situation? Happened to mention it to a guy who was familiar with them and he laughed and said,"Malibu Kayaks come with 2 gallons of water in them", so I knew it wasn't just my kayak and at this point I'm wondering how I can fix it.
Any ideas? Thanks...

I only see one Excaliber on my inventory sheet,

The newer Malibus went to trim loc for a better sealing bow hatch. The tighter you attach the better it keeps out water.

There will be newer models sold with the seat pan to use aftermarket seating.

X Seats will be available as an option. These retail for $350 and we will be selling them for $250

I have a Stealth 14, I really really want to stick with Malibu but must agree it get way too much water inside, I have brought it back to them they beefed up the seal around the gator hatch, it does better now but I still get a gallon plus of water in it even in moderate surf.

I think when I buy another kayak I will really take a hard look at the hobbies.
