Re: Cockpit drain holes
Is there space and opportunity to run the scuppers out the back of the cockpit (through the aft wall down low in the corners) towards the transom/ counter rather than straight down to the hull? That would give you more room for through hull valves and possibly keep the whole setup above the static waterline...
