2011 Valley Avocet LV seat

Any tips on getting the molded plastic seat out of the cockpit? It has broken in several places and needs to be repaired or replaced. I have unbolted it and rotated it but can’t for the life of me figure out how to get it out of the boat. I could theoretically repair it in the boat, but it sure would be easier to work on it outside of the boat.

Well they got it in there somehow. So it HAS to be removable. . They didn’t mold the kayak with the seat in it.
