We never bury the rail and even if we did I can't imagine it would matter for the few seconds the rail might be under water.
Can anyone give me a good reason why I shouldn't do this?
Can you place the hoses at an angle? I mean, they should be lower than horizontal to drain with the boat level.
Is the hose path clear to go from straight down to higher up?

But I have to ask because I have always envied the type of scuppers that you have now, why are they nonsensical?
For several of the seacocks you must literally take the bottom out of hanging lockers and the like.
