I have a friend with a 16 ft carolina skiff classic (98 model i believe) that has water in the hull. There is no hull drain anywhere so we drilled a hole in the bilge area. Very little water came out, but its obvious the foam is wet and the boat is very heavy.
What can you do in this situation? I was thinking he should drill the hole out bigger to a 1" diameter and install a hull drain with a plug and then leave the boat out of the water for a while. Is there anything else we can do to get the water out?
Anyone have experience with Carolina skiffs getting water logged?
