I like the back one but my hull is immaculate so don't fancy screwing anything into it like I would need to on the front, is there any other option for blocking the front with drilling?

Maybe I will plug her up for a play one day

It won't go any faster, just pick up quicker from rest and get on the plane faster.

Thank you all for your sensible and enlightening advice. the perspex plate with the bung sounds like a good solution for me, with the possibility of the equalising tube. However, I am completely new to all this and I need to know if these components are available as standard or to I have to 'manufacture' them.
Does the perspex have to be particularly thick in order to retain the bung?
Thank you all again

Oh yeah, and did you screw on the perspex plate or just seal it on with Sika flex?

You can usually find suitable bungs or very easily modifiable parts at a decent trade plumbers merchant. Some more 'bunging up a SR' info/links here:

Hi ,
Here the promised picture . I found a SS bung which fit almost perfectly into the opening of the flooding hull .
It can be easily closed with a sealed SS cover . Now I have in a simple way both options available - to go with open / or closed hull .
Just do not have currently a picture of the cover - but can do tomorrow when I am back in Germany .
Cheers Jürgen

Mine's just Sikaflexed on, and the bung is Sika'd in. 5 or 6mm perspex, and I made the bung with equalising tube with silicone washer tube. I drilled a hole through the centre of the bung and sealed the tube in with Sika.
Make sure you rough up the perspex where the Sika goes or it'll peel off.

Just do not buy the Avon blanking kit, it's crap, and expensive. We did and binned it eventually.

Though the front plugs that are like bottle stops or drain plugs are ok.
