Help with flooding hull

Hi there,

We have recently aquired an older 6.4 meter Searider with flooding hull..but my investigation shows that, they usually have one big hole in transom and two small ventilation holes in the bow..but this boat doesn't have those two holes in the bow..instead there is one made in the deck with some transparent tube connected to it just between the steering wheel and jockey seat. So I just wonder if it makes the same effect on the boat driving, flooding and getting rid of water in the hull abilities?

I have attached some pictures of the front of the rib( it might be that the hole have been sealed) and that tube that's connected to the handmade hole in the deck,under the steering wheel.

Regards,
Edgar

It was a newer version circa 1992. It will have no effect on performance. It was used on the offshore oil model which had a habit of lifting nose down when recovered and draining out of the two holes. Having the other hole on the deck lessened this problem.
