inspection hole and bilge
Hi all my first post, so a quick hello!
I have owned a rib for the past 2 years which is kept on water for the majority of the year but regularly causes me problems with water getting into the hull and slowing the boat down. Unfortunately there appears to be no easy way of draining this water without trailing or beaching the rib!
I have decided that the easiest way to drain the water will be to install a round inspection hatch to the rear of the boat with a bilge pump inside. But before I go making a hole in the deck I thought I would check and see if this would be a good idea or could I risk doing serious structural damage to the deck?
Thanks for the replies in advance.
