A couple of questions: (1) What was the rational for having the cockpit drain through-hulls positioned below the waterline and are there issues with raising them to, say, a couple of inches below the cockpit floor? (2) The scupper drains are connected to the cockpit drain lines with not very large bore hose. The scuppers drain well if forced first with a water hose, but normally draining will not start otherwise. The lines have no high spot but seem to get air locked. I'm thinking about giving them their own through-hull placed a couple of inches below the bottom of the scuppers, well above the water line. Have you run into this issue before, and what was the solution?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
