If you haven't seen this, I made a slight addition to the track to make mount alignment of the bolt and nut easier. http://www.nativeown...nstallation-Tip

My initial thought is why didn't your dealer assemble your boat from the factory. They are supposed to and they are the ones that will handle any warranty issues. They know the torque specs and should have in stock the basics incase boats have any shipping issues. If they had done this, the bad karma would have been on them... The only issue I had with the propel I have is that the hull is one of the prototypes. When they pull the boats out of the initial mold, they put them into cooling molds and put tensioners in the hulls where they are needed so as the hull cools, it doesn't shrink in places it isn't supposed too. Well since mine was a prototype...it was used to make these things...so the tensioners didn't exist when it was pulled from the mold. It shrank about a 1/2" too much in the width so I have issues getting the seat bolts to fit into the groove tracks just right. I quickly learned to leave the seat in this particular boat and just make sure it is strapped down well. Hopefully your dealer will get things right for you and if he doesn't, let us know and we will see what we can do to get it right.
My seat is tight, but not terrible. I've been wanting to leave the seat on bc the length adjustment is important if i'm pedaling all day. I don't re-adjust the seat on a road bike every time I use it. Also, the rail nuts are brass and I'm worried about eventually stripping them out. I might throw a small ratchet strap over the seat to help keep it snugged.

I believe I've encountered this same seat/groove-track alignment issue, on my 2017 SP10 hull. Tracks are almost not widely separated enough to allow the seat bolts to slide into the track groove and engage the nuts correctly. Since I SUV-top my boat, I really don't want to leave the seat installed while traveling.
What is the recommended fix for this? Shorten the front seat frame bar? That's not something I'd like to try myself...
I think I'll talk to my dealer...

I did as per the OP, cut 1/4 inch off the front bar (about 1/8" off each side.)

Having same problem on new 2017 Slayer Propel 12 LT. Working with pipe cutter to fix. Need to take a little more off for seat to slide freely.
Tried pushing on sides but could not get second seat screw to line up without wanting to strip threads on track nut.
