I have 1976 19`4" Outrage.The fwd deck drain is near the stbd side of the deck. Does anyone know what area or compartment this drains into?

If this is anything like my 1972 21 outrage, it drains into the bilge at the stern. took me a while to figure out what that hole was!

evidently, at one time the factory had run the drain/wiring tube forward close to the forward bulkhead that formed the inner anchor locker on both models. My 1973 21' does not have it, yet I've seen it on other 21's.

I guess they must have had a drainage concern up forward. Water will accumulate up ahead of the cooler (assuming a cooler mounted infront of the console....) if there is a somewhat heavy load up there, like people, anchor's gear, etc.

I just found another one of these in the foreward end of the control conduit as I was restoring the console on my 21 outrage. I wondered if the two were connected so I ran a garden hose into each of them but they both seemed to be plugged with debris. Does anyone know what the tubing is made of, whether or not they join toghether, does the tubing become delaminated from the hull liner introducing water into the foam. I was unaware of these when I bought the boat so consequently didnt inspect them. In fact I dont even know how.
