Passagemaker daggerboard

I've been sailing and rowing my Passagemaker for a few years now. The daggerboard is designed with a handle that sticks up above the middle seat. Is there any reason I shouldn't cut off the handle and replace it with a loop of webbing attached through a slot. I'm thinking that would allow pushing it down flush with the seat to make it easier to sit on/slide across? I have a strip of weatherstripping around the board just under the handle to wedge it in and keep it from floating up which would continue to hold it in the correct position even without the handle.
