Hi All, I have a drainage problem in my 235ssi. There is a compartment in the floor between the fuel tank panel the cuddy cabin door. It's filled with water and won't drain. I wet vac'd the water out and then took the four screws out of the 3" drain cover plate to find a small 1/2 hole drilled through the floor with a drain under it. I used a small tool to clean it out and it seems there is some sort of metal fixture under the hole, no idea if it is a metal elbow or what it is. It looks corroded. It was full of crap. I fired compressed air in there and nasty black water came bubbling up. I took a garden house and blasted water in, same thing, nasty water bubbled up. I wet vac'd it again and pulled a lot of water out, repeating over and over hoping to dislodge whatever was in there, but no dice. I took the engine cover off, removed the eight screws holding the floor over the fuel tank and tried to see of there is a hole between the tank compartment and the front compartment but can't really see in there. It was totally dry and the bilge is dry. I went into the engine compartment and fired the hose up under the tank from the rear. Clean water just ran back. Any idea where this tiny drain drains to? What kind of drain is it? Does it have a rubber tube or does it just dump straight down? I ran a wire in there but I don't want to puncture anything. I am considering pulling the fuel tank to get a better view but I really don't want to. Any ideas? Thanks
