no drain plug in Zodiac Hurricane 640 with Volvo diesel

I feel pretty stupid asking this question but how do I get the water out of the bilge. The Volvo drive sits so low there is no room for a drain plug. So I'm kinda lost how to get the water out... Am I missing something?

There is a bilge pump and its pumped out to below that pump but it's still holding quite a bit of water down there.

Thanks

Drain plug

My old one had a drain plug located under the Volvo. Not very easy to reach

Iíll have to look more closely but I donít think you could get one under mine. Not sure what those weird rubber things are either? Any thoughts on those?

I tend to use one of those oil suction/vacuum pumps to grab the last bit from the very back of the engine compartment that the main bilge pump can't clear, mainly because it's a bit hard to get a sponge all the way down there!
