I have the Telwater scuppers  with the squash ball in them and had no issue at all.  The older version with the stupid rubber flap on my previous boat just did not work and the dealer didn’t even attempt to fix them under warranty after asking at service time.    We sealed them up.

The last few trips I have had a few litres as well.   I had doubts if it happened out on the water though.   It’s definitely drained atm as I washed the boat at a mates house before driving home with the bungs out and putting it in the garage.  So I will know for sure next trip.   My boat is an Stacer Easy Rider not a Trident.

I get that and just put it down to not having enough tilt to drain water from the very front, might have to try and reverse down the boat ramp and leave the bung out and see if more water comes out before I go fishing.

I did taste it once and it was fresh so I put it down to being rain water rather than through my scupper

ok so I removed everything out of the back, foam and all and took her out, found minor droplets from the trim tabs and a split hose from the return hose of the live bait tank, also washed the deck and found water leaking from behind the funnels that drain the water to the back scuppers , all minor stuff but annoying, resealed the lot and replaced hoses with high pressure hoses, I know they wont split

Good move on using pressure hose it should be that way from the factory.

It might be prudent to protect the hoses and electrical wiring from the edges of the "ribs" on the floor while you have access to prevent possible damage later on.

That was the easy part, the hard part was stacking all the foam back in LOL
