Thanks SchockT and Dave! I'm going to do an inventory and start cleaning today as I'm getting ready for the survey and diesel engine check.

It's a hole for Mitt Romney to let the water out.

Re: Bow Centreline.

You could put a true through hull fitting for a future mascerator pump out if you were ever going offshore.

Probably is for the speed/ knot log transducer. We dont leave ours in as it gets clogged with growth. Do you have that instrument on the boat? If you do the transducer will be somehwere attached to a cable in the v berth hull area.,

You could use the hole to instal a fitting for a dolphin striker and bow sprite.

Thanks guys for the replies! I will wait for the survey, but it looks like the hole was part of manufacturing not after. I pulled everything out of the Vberth area and looked below. There is a water holding tank, but I think the hole is still towards the stern from there?
Besides glassing over it, what could be used as a permanent plug?
