Under floor drainage clogged

Post by ScreamingPotato »

Forgive me I don't know the correct term for these drains so it's affecting my ability to search for previous threads. We've been out camping in a few heavy storms, seems the front of the boat always fills up quite a bit and the water is very slow trickling back into the bilge area to pump out. I assume the channels under the floor are clogged. Just wondering if anyone has successfully cleared them out without having to remove the floor/deck and if so could you offer some info for me to get after it. I can get to them from the bilge/transom area but if I get after it from that end I'm thinking I'll likely just pack the clogs further up or just put things around without being able to get the gunk out.

Boat is a 2004 (or 2005 I forget) Alumacraft 1756 with the tunnel if that matters. There only seems to be one small circular deck drain in the floor for access just behind the center console.
