Before you do anything give Gary at Redbay a ring and explain your plight and he will be able to advise you on your options the number is 028 2177 1331

Don't bother with a plastic drain assy - fit a proper marine bronze unit such as in the picy - they are only a tenner - brass will only dezincify over time.

Many thanks for your feedback and thanks for the picture.

The brass one looks for for the job, will give Gary a call and have a chat, thanks for the info.

Had a good luck over the boat and definitely no other drains on the boat, the boat came with the attwood bilge pump, I have recently re rigged it with a through hull fitting and new pipe work. No other pumps or drains anywhere

Thanks again

These are far better as they go right through the transom and there are no issues trying to seal the inside of the hole with gel coat etc.

Aquafax Marine & Industrial Equipment

Plus an old thread of mine.
Transom tube/bung wanted

Please see some pictures of the transom and the bilge well

It is an early 2002 boat so may have been missed off the build list
Thanks for the info

This was what the boat looked like when I bought it

Nasty bilge pipe

Am I being completely daft... Purple rope on that transom picture above looks like its for an elephant trunk type arrangement? Can't think what else it would be.

Went back to the blue transom photo and there is something circular just on the starboard edge of the picture... Like an elelphant trunk fitting maybe? And not visible above so where is it connected to.

Pretty sure I must be talking sh1t ...

That'll drain the water on deck. He's after draining water from below deck, either in to the well or out of the rear.

For the sharp eyed you will see on the left the shadow of the elephants trunk, it's near to the power supply cable for the pump bottom left.

I haven't added anything other than the through hull fitting and new piping

The "brown" item visible to the right of the bilge pump is presumably the inboard end of a handle inserted into the drain sock/elephant trunk - presumably there to stop the sock from kinking.
