Shame, the boat seems perfect but a 400 mile round trip seems a bit extreme!!

new to this

Hi I've just got one of these with a 30HP does the hole at the back of this boat need to have a bung put in it? Thank you

Is it a hole or a trunk? If it's a hole, yes!

Hi thanks for the reply, it's a hole that's has a plate on the outside, but looking from the inside out I can see the floor out side? I did read something abut a flooded hull? I am very new to the world of boating

How big is the hole?

Trunks are big and the bottom of the hole is level with the deck. Usually they have a "top hat" fitting screwed to the transom or a bit of plastic pipe that sticks out the back gooped in through the bore of the hole. All trunks usually have a rope with a cleat on the transom (usually a jam cleat) to raise it (althoug hsome like mine are led back to the helm position, so you might not find a cleat, but it's highly likely if it is a trunk hole). If you can see a cleat or the old mounting holes - it's probably for a trunk. Lots of places will sell you replacement trunks to fit to it. (Hypalon goo & a tie wrap will work nicely)

If the boat has a hollow floor, I think I'm safe in saying Seariders are the only ones with the flooding hull. Most ribs have a small drain bung which is uslually almost at the bottom of the transom's V. If this is your hole - bung it!


Better still - post a pic & remove all doubt form the answers!

So???....Your obviously new to this Game...Buy a couple of 'Wrong-uns' and see if you feel the same wayWhats a few hours Motorway work.....
If its the right Boat and Money for YOU I'd go for it..'Perfect' (as you say) Boats aren't two a Penny,and soon get snapped up.....and a 'Wrong-un' will likely be an on-going financial drain...And A pain in the Arse!...even if it IS just down the Road!

He's probably managed to make the trip in the last three and a half years?

But the how far will you go for a boat question is always a good one :-)

I did hear of a chap who drove silly miles in the rain to pick up some off road motorbike from Hampshire....must be mad!!!!

That looks to be a one way valve, water pressure closes it when stationery and is opened when you go along to clear any deck water!
