Classic or "Post Classic", does anyone use scupper plugs?
I have a 99 Dauntless 14 with a 75hp Merc. At rest, water comes through the scupper holes and leaves 1 1/2-2" dep water, about 6" from the stern in the stern of the boat. This is a pain. I solved it by inserting scupper plugs into the scupper holes and I have a dry boat (except for normal rain, spray for rough water etc). Removing the plugs while running removes the water. Is this water buildup just because I have the max hp (at it's weight) on the Dauntless? Anyone else use the plugs?

I have scupper plugs (Perko) on 1996 Outrage III. I find boat stern heavy especially with a kicker. When trolling and 4 adults in boat plugs are a necessity as I found out when one jammed open

I plugged the scuppers on my Dauntless 13 when I had it. Water always got into the boat when backing it i at the launch ramp. Stick, pebbles, insects, and other objects constantly fouled the flaps open.
I put in some expansion plugs, left them unless I needed to wash the boat. I never had ater in the boat again, except for rain and spray.
