The center one is fine and properly installed, it is a deck drain.





The two keel/bilge drains are to either side. They seemed to be dry today so I've applied some marine silicone to them to see if that keeps the water out when I put the plugs in. I want to see if the water gets in past the plugs or from somewhere else.

Not really - the floor drain could be inches away from the transom - a trunk needs to be flush with the floor.

I maybe wasn't too clear with my original explanation?

That was kind of what I was on about - a "standard" one where each saw is it;s own "can" you can do that - but some are like a big cast thing with multiple grooves into which you put the size of blade you need - then you have to do the final cut from the outside as there is likely going to be half an inch of excess blade carrier to foul the floor.


I get the feeling this is one of these "pic speaks 1000 words" moments!

Yeah; I was looking at a scupper (drains the deck through the transom) vs a bilge drain.

You were talking (I think) about a deck drain into the bilge.

Same page now.
