1st - my boat cover is dirty and dusty, every time we put the cover on the boat, it gets the boat all dirty. So the question is how do you clean a boat cover properly?

2nd - I bought my boat on monday, and I was under it today, hooking it up to fake a lake when I noticed a threaded hole underneath the boat, it looks like it could be the intake for the middle ballast, but i am not sure. it is about the same size as the hole you put the hull plug in. Is it normal to just drop the boat in the water and not have to do anything to that hole?

Dusty cover: As you take the cover off, give it a good shake to get the dust off. The easiest way to wash the cover is to leave it on the boat, wash the cover, let it dry, then wash the boat.

Threaded hole: is the hole dead center? It sounds like the second, inside drain plug. It is common for there to be one drain plug in the transom, installed from the outside and then to have a second drain plug, just forward of the engine (on a V-drive) that installs from the inside. The inside drain plug usually has a "T" handle on it so you can install/remove by hand.

Rod and Andy, thanks for the input on the cover. Rod for the hole under the boat, it is in front of the 3 fins under the boat. It isn't directly in the center of the boat, it is a bit offset. I do have a v drive with a triple ballast system. If this hole is for the center ballast, I didn't see 2 more holes underneath for the two rear ballasts.

It is probably a drain, or intake for the ballast
