    Even if you have trapped water your center drain will be dry....like mine. If you want to know if there is water open the ski locker, stand up on the floor ( in the ski locker) put your feet as forward as possible and jump...you will hear the water.

    My dealer was supposed to call me back for that problem but I m still waiting........................

    I only have 1 drain....at the rear of the boat, no centre drain.

    The water is stuck in there with no way to escape....I might have a look this weekend....but I don't want to spend days at it.

    I don’t think I weigh enough to make it slosh, I tried jumping on it last night with the bow at different angles but I could hear anything. I need to get one of my bigger friends to come over and try.

    Doesn't your basement locker have a drain that goes back to the bilge area? I get water in the basement regularly. Have ran the boat plowing nose high for a short ride to drain it, then put a cork in it before slowing back down. At home on the trailer I will lower the jack and the nose of the boat as far as it will got and let the water run in there intentionally, then vac it out with my Tsunami handheld. Or drive up and park on a hill for a few min while everything drains out the back.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Default Drain

    Sorry, yes, I have a hole running from the front ski locker to the rear engine compartment.

    I don't have an actual drain plug in the centre of the boat (like some Mastercrafts).

    I actually blocked up my hole from the front ski locker to the rear compartment, as it was always wet in the ski locker......

    Now its my dry area, with a fatsac in place....(i say dry, but whenever it rains heavy, the rainwater from the front section of the cover seeps in to the front seating area, and down into the ski locker. (as my ski locker has no 'roof')

    For those who put a deck plate in the ski locker did you put it in the front, in th middle or in the rear of the locker? I will have to do this but I don't know where to drill the hole

    I put three deck plates in the ski locker (front, middle and rear). I found that the foam restricted the water from flowing back to the deepest point below the ski locker floor. I started with the first hole as far back to the stern as I could, but when I sucked the water out, there was still water sloshing further up front. I was amazed at how much water I got out of there each time I drilled a new access hole.

    What deck plates size did you use? Is it possible to damage a stringer when you cut the floor? ( is there a stringer there)

    Since you made the holes, is there a lot of water that goes under the ski locker floor each time you go on the water?

    I do find water there more than I would like and it's not always cause I dip the bow. I struggle to make sense of it, but maybe I get some leakage from my ski locker bag? The other thought is that my bow lights (dock lights) are the culprit, but I usually don't roll that deep.

    I used 4 or 5" plates, I don't remember exactly. I actually have Sahara pumps in two of the holes to auto suck out the water, so check the dimensions on those and that might tell you what I have, as the pumps fit in the opening, no problem.

    No stringer down there at all.

    Today I made a hole in the rear of the floor like the dealer suggest. Surprise.....no water there....everything s dry. So I made a hole in the front an a lot of water ( smelling bad) starts to get out. I ve shop vac 26 liters of water there. So now I think that something restricted the water from going in the back.....just foam or somethin else? Stringer?
