    Raised the deck 1-3/4 , just launched it to mark the water line and it self bails with a 300 lb OB . I will still plug the scuppers when drifting . Where are u located , there are a few midlands in the Clinton Ct area ,they are on here and will help . Do a Midland search on here

    I have a 1976 with a self bailing deck. With a 90 4-stroke it doesn't take on water while sitting but does in use. Mine is trailered so I have the scuppers plugged. I would like to find quality scuppers that would allow me to open them up and use as intended.

    9C4DF00B-57C3-46FF-9669-9CB5BD2188ED.jpeg Thanks, Iā€™m thinking of raisin deck
    2ā€ and leaving about 4ā€ in the transom at original height so water will run off the deck, I had it sprayed to match my regulator
