Stringer Drain Holes before Foam?

Post by BLindahl »

So while power washing the subfloor out i had to use the shop vac to get water out of the side areas. Was thinking of drilling small holes in stringers, towards the rear, in hope to have all water drain into center of boat and to bilge. What to do? Or just seal with Gluvit and Install foam?

Limber holes are a good thing ... a DRY bilge is a happy bilge.

If it can hold water, it will.
