    Default Center Drain Plus

    While performing my ballast upgrade a noticed a spot on the bottom of my boat between two of the tracking fins that was a flattened out circle like it was meant to have a center drain plug installed there. If you remove the floor from inside there is a hole
    Molded into the gas tank that I believe goes to where this circle is. Has anyone added a center bilge drain to their boats?? I am considering doing this on my 08 LSV but am not sure how. I know shortly after my model year they started to come standard with the center drain plug.

    Well all the new boas have the plug that you remove or install from inside the boat. I was hoping to find one like that. I don't think it would be too hard to drill a hole in the floor and install an access panel like the newer LSVs

    I believe the problem is the gas tanks weren't molded with access to the area where the plug would go. You'll have to access it from underneath the boat. The kit like Pat posted will work fine. I wouldn't worry about the plug being exposed as it's inline with the tracking fins and doubt it'll create much if any drag. Be careful when drilling from bottom up as gas tank sits above with maybe 1/2" of clearance.

    This could be a really great upgrade. Watching to see what you come up with.

    I have a hole in my gas tank that looks like it goes down right where the plug would go. I'll test it with some magnets in the next week
