If it drains slowly an additional one may be installed in the transom, but I would keep the 2 originals.

I believe the op is in San Francisco and it is not in the hurricane belt.
I'm hauling it out this coming Friday for paint and keel inspection. They drain slower than they look like they should so I'll try snaking them and see if they have debris
