Installation Of Transom Drain

Water weighs ten pounds per gallon.  One hundred gallons weighs half a ton.  This hull holds more than a hundred gallons.  An accident that happens to fill a hull with water weighs more than what any person or group of people can easily handle and requires a bailer and transom drain.  Adding a transom drain to any boat is a necessity.

I placed the transom drain near the centre support.  Marking and drilling was easy.  Enlarging was easy as well in the aluminum using a die grinder in my drill.




…and an addition of a rubber washer makers it watertight…


For a few dollars for the brass fitting and two dollars for the plug it was an easy, convenient, and needed addition.
