Water Tender Dinghy Needs a Drain

I purchased a Water Tender 9.4 after reading an article in "Good Old Boat" that extolled the virtues of this dinghy but now have a problem due to the lack of a drain. I keep the dinghy on davits in Florida and heavy rains will add water and weight even though I have a boat cover. This would be a much better dighy if it had a drain.

The boat is molded polyethylene and has two cockpit sections separated by a wide seat that would need to be connected. Then a wide stern seat would need to be plumbed with a pipe to a drain.

Has anyone added drainage for this boat that could offer suggestions?

Thanks,

Kansas_Clay in Florida
