i need to move my seat back and the bolts are rusted and i cant undoo the allen keys any ideas anyone?'s picture

Use a drill the same size as the hole in the boat (not the head)
make the drill is sharp and stop often to let the bolt cool down (or it can melt thru the boat.
You can pour water onto the boat often to cool while drilling it.
Make sure you drill straight down the centre and slow down when you are ready to break thru.

excess CRC should help unless allen key or hole has changed due to rust. I which case - Good luck
