    Drilling the Hull

    The front well drain on my 2010rxtx occasionally fills with water and nails me in the face when I ramp it up in chop. The right side drain in the footwell isn't adequate enough to drain it so I want to put a second in the left footwell. Am I asking for trouble drilling the hull in that location?

    I drilled a hole for a bilge outlet on that side.
    You need a drilling machine with a 90 degree angle bit, because of the limited space in the footwell.

    Before you drill, I would check that drain line for an obstruction, like dirt...Blow thru the hose with compressed air..

    Good point
    Maybe you can increase the size of stock hose and fittings
