Hull Drain

Could somebody please tell me what to do with the drain hole leading into the hull void when out on the water. At the transom i have a sump with a bilge pump in it also an elephants trunk but on the inner side i have a hole leading into the hull, my question is should i block this hole while out to stop the sump filling it with water or do i leave it open for the water to go in and out of.

If it's dry inside I'd bung it before you go out and then open it to check if any water is inside after you get it back on the trailer, if it's dry I would only open it evey so often to check

My old rib had the same set up. I always kept a bung in the hole into the hull. When I recovered the boat on to the trailer I would take both bungs out while the boat was pointing up the slipway to get max water out.
