Default 3300 SCR Drain Plug?

does the 3300 have a drain plug? If not does anyone have a good way to get the water out of the bilge? shop vac and towels?

Rip yes it does have a drain plug.

I have a one gallon dry vac that I keep in my dock box to get all the water out of my bilge. I have a routine once a week where I clean my bilge area. Once the water is gone I spray a cleaner and rub it down with a terry cloth towel. Spray some wd 40 on the engines and done.

+1 on it having a drain plug.

Roger you have way to much free time to clean the bilge once a week, lucky if the outside of my boat gets cleaned once a month.

The garboard plug in on the transom right where the keel meets the transom. This should be removed whenever the boat is hauled. Don't forget to replace before you launch again. I place mine on the dashboard when I haul the boat to remind me to replace it before I launch.

Just looked at the pdf for 2400, 2800, 3000, and 3300 that is on the home page all except the 3300 show a garboard drain so I guess you do not have one.
