After reading the Supra manual I don't know for sure how many drain plugs there are? I know there is one in the back that I removed (trying to wash the guts of the boat after a gas leak this summer), but I'd like to know if there is one under the boat, in the middle like I've see on new Malibus and CCs. My boat is a 2005 Supra Launch 21V.

Elevate the front of your boat so that water will drain out the rear. Then take a hose into the front locker and try squirting water into the drain pipe in the back of the locker.

The 21v design is a pain to get the water out. If you have a steep ramp, the drain in the back can work, however if you're on level ground, jack the front of the boat up then take the PP assembly out and siphon the water through the hull there. I've done this the last two years when winterizing.

I managed to wash it all out by filling up those compartments with water and some Dawn, and then driving slowly up a steep hill until the bilge pump finished spitting out almost all the water. I had to then rinse and repeat the uphill driving process. Not sure how much the drain plug helped. I wonder if the folks that would be winterizing my boat next week would also remove any remaining water under the engine that the bilge pump could not.
