This is the transom taken just after getting the boat home. Notice the small hole below the outboard tracks. This was brass and had a pipe leading to the starboard locker. It did not drain the cockpit but I am guessing it was to drain the locker if gas was stored there. The locker was not sealed so not sure how efective it would have been. I have removed the fitting and pipe.
This is the transom now it has been sanded and painted with grey primer. I have bought a new through hull fitting which is in place at the bottom of the transom. I will either connect this to a drain at the aft end of the cockpit or use it as an outlet for a hand operated bilge pump.
