Topic: Relocating cockpit scupper drains

Has anyone relocated the cockpit scupper drains to go through the transom instead of the hull?

Re: Relocating cockpit scupper drains

No and I would not recommend doing it. You would lose the Venturi Effect whereby the water in the cockpit is sucked by the moving water along the sides. You noticed that the water drains much faster when the boat is moving compared as when standing still.
