Transom and through hull fitting

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.
