surely if you block the bow holes then it won't drain?

After much thinking & talking to different people I have decided to bung up holes at the bow with wine bottle corks & sika flex.Rear hole will bung up with 2 rubbers discs.one goes inside the hole other outside with a threaded bolt running through the middle.when tightened it seals the hole.This is made specifically for the purpose by poly marine & is pretty cheap as opposed to avons kit for the job which comes out at over 200!!! Hope this is of help to anyone else pondering doing this.

John give me a pm and I'll show you what I've done on my searider-you're only 15 miles from me. It works a treat at stopping re-filling and keeps the stability at rest.

Part I got from Poly marine is an expanding bung.Has a cap at the end which can be used to drain water out of hull if any should get in hull.Ring Richard at Poly marine as he suggested it.Part cost a tenner inc postage.
