Bilge Drain Plug in a Sailboat

I''ve just recently installed a drain plug at the lowest point in the bilge. My buddy is deeply disturbed by this and feels it is unecessary. I look forward to the easy bilge cleaning at haulout and the lack of winter water in the bilge. He says fewer thu hulls is better and will never put one in his boat.
Are bilge drains very common out there? What do we think of the idea?
