Thread: holes in keel?

  1. #1

    Default holes in keel?

    i recently got a 75 starcraft aluminum. along the keel guards( or at least i think thats what they are called- first boat, so im kinda learning.) there is a 1/4 hole drilled into each one about a third of the way back. I am assuming it would be for a drain of some sort? But since it does take on a fair amount of water and i dont know where it is coming from, i am wondering if i should plug those up? or are they needed?

    Default Re: holes in keel?

    if i am out and moving on the lake, i would say a gallon every half hour. better when it sits as it took on roughly 5 gallons overnight. here are the holes, one on the bottom, and one each on the next one up on the sides.
