    SS 188 Underseat Storage Not Draining

    Got my brand new SS 188 in July but just took the first occasion to wash out the storage area under the port-side aft lounge seat. There is a drain hole in the bottom of that area that I assume is supposed to drain in to the bilge but the wash water I poured and hosed in there would not drain. Had to remove several inches of water with a large sponge. I thought maybe the drain was just slow but after an hour not an ounce of water drained. I tried probing in to the hole with something to remove any small blockage. No luck. Have seen on other forums where this may be a known manufacturing flaw with some Hurricane boats where the drain holes are not punched fully open. Can anyone else advise?

      I know this is an old post, but did you ever find an answer?  I’m having the same issue with my 188.  Thanks.

      I have a 2017 SS201 and the big center floor storage area is not draining even though there are two holes punched in the aft end of this large floor storage area.  Did anyone ever get an answer for diagrams of under the decks so we can understand how the water is supposed to get to the bilge?
