Re: New purchase, needs bottom paint, no trailer

There always seem to be more trailerable boats than trailers, the result being that used trailers are hard to find. Probably easier to buy a new trailer, or a boat/trailer combination just for the trailer....

On the subject of the drain, can't you see where it goes through the hull? They are often below the waterline. If it is, and you break the valve off, and the boat is in the water, it will sink. Simple. I suspect that's why the PO told you not to mess with it in the water.
