  • row boat drain

    Is it possible to add a drain to a aluminum row boat? Is it a prudent move?Thanks!

    Does it not already have one?I've heard of people drilling a hole in the transom of their boat and then welding in a peice of copper tubing that a drain plug will fit in.

      No it does not.

        I put one in an old glass GameFisher. Just drilled a half inch hole and used a lever type plug. Never leaked. With aluminum, it may be too thin?Probably don't need it if it's still a "row" boat.

          I don't see why it can't be done.I'd get one of the plastic drain plugs offered in West Marine and install it with 3M 5200.
