Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Drilled some huge holes in the boat today. Decided to go out the transom. Refilled and drilled again. Can't wait to get it on the water and try these duckbills out!

I think you will have problems with scupper drains making turns. Straight through is best in my experience.

I have to clean my dad's Proline drains all the time due to the right angles they make... :(
