Expanding or screw bungs?

Any sign of a drain into the flooding hull from inside?

Screw bungs, but only 90 degree turn, in transom.
On the floor inside is an expanding bung to the flooding hull beneath.
There is no drain from the "floor" to the outside. Only through the expanding bung that then drains to the flooding hull and then through to the transom.

I don't think the screw bungs are original then-only ever seen them with no transom bungs if they have a drain into the flooding hull.

Someone will probably know the rough age if it's got the floor drain. I reckon probably late 80's, but that's a guesstimate.

I do like the nice orange ribbons tied round it and one even has a bow in it
Probably add to the bounce of the boat and trailer giving the mudguard more of a chance to let go

That bow took a while to get right! Hold two loops and swoop one through.
