Re: First Sail

Your description is a little hard to follow. The holes in the transom should have flaps covering them so that water doesn't come in; they are held closed with a length of shock cord and the cord is released when bailing is necessary. I am not familiar with the ping pong ball scuppers you mention, the type I know are wedges that are pushed open to bail and locked up to seal. I would advise you to get both the transom and floor scuppers working; you can empty a flooded boat amazingly quick without having to hand bail.
