After running the whaler for the weekend I was looking at the drain hole in the floor and realized that the brass sleeve i installe does not runn all the way up into the inside of the boat allowing water to come in contact with the foam and most likely the wood in the transom doe anyone know where i can get a sleeve to fit all the way through or a way to fix this?. Bought and installed the sleeve because the drain plug would not fit in transom.Thanks

its angled upward and hard to get brass all the way through for an even transom seam. I took a piece of the black hard flex piping 1/8 smaller than the drain and cut it to bridge the gap then sealed with 5200. Also stuck some up the copper drain from the outside and sealed that seam too.

I figured it would take something like that a little inginuity but I was wondering if anyone was familiar with the origional setup and what it looked like. I felt what seemed to be a second hole and assumed it was meant to have a copper tube all the way through to drain. Also has anyone set up a pump on this typpe of boat in the rear well and if so where did they run the drain tube.
Thanks again
