Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Here is a shot of the Zip with the bilge drain plugs and the motor box drain holes. I used 1" brass tubes for all of them. Motor box drains are left open. I ran my bilge pump discharge into the motor box and let that drain out the motor box holes.

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Do a search on states that have drain plug laws for boats.

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Wisconsin and Minnesota have laws regarding aquatic plants and animals being transported by boats and trailers. Check the state dnr regulations for any lakes and states you plan on visiting.

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Yup. I like to leave mine out after pulling the boat out and on the way home. Many lakes require that you arrive and leave with plugs removed to ensure that the spread of invasive species is mitigated. Some may require steam cleaning of your bilge.

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Your boat being more open will be easier to monitor and clean out. More enclosed boats would benefit more with the drains. But a proper installation would also be fine.

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

I like the transom drains. Used them in both the Zip and the Torpedo. Bilge pumps will still leave and inch and a half of water and, depending on where the low spot is, it might be hard to sponge out. I epoxied the wood surface after drilling and used thickened epoxy (System Three Gel Magic) to glue...
