Re: Need to install cockpit drain in Spirit 23
Thanks for the replies.
Seems to me that I'd have to put about 200 lbs in the rear of the boat.
Even after a light rain, I have at least one inch of water standing in the forward end of the cockpit floor.
The rainy season is likely over for now. But what I might do is put an inch or so of water in the cockpit using the slip hose, then sit on the transom/stern and see if my 180 lbs is enough to get the water to flow aft.
Also, if I put more weight in the rear, wouldn't that lift up the bow and affect performance/tracking/steering and make the boat kind of "corky"?
