R32 deck drains - port side

Repair advice
Posted: 31 Oct 2008 - By: Julia (& Liz MacInally) Randall
Does anyone have advice on how to repair leaking deck drains on the inaccessible port side of a Rival 32?  I can access the aft drain with difficulty, but the forward drain is in an inaccessible spot above the diesel tank and under the edge of the deck coaming, where no human arm can reach!

We have leakage when heeled to port, but not when level, and had to stopper the deck drains in order to cut down on bilge pumping while on passage.  

Has anyone had scupper holes fitted under the toerail on an R32, and if so, do they work as well as the deck drains?
