scuppers

I am deeply opposed to cockpit drains that exit below the waterline on any boat that may be left in the water over the winter in a northern climate. The cockpit drains need to be left open during the winter and if they are in the water sooner or later the lines will freeze up and split the drain hose. It is bad enough to have a frozen cockpit drain leaking into the boat but it is way more serious if that hose is attached to a thru-hull below the waterline.
