Has anyone modded the stern tank on a Rowsell NSM4 to assist drainage in any way?

I've seen a hoare NSM4 with two plasic drain tubes and small transom flaps but don't know if it worked or not.

Brian Cobb has cut the stern tank from 3316 (a Summer Wine I think) cutting the wooden tank almost to the floor of the hull, adding a filler piece to the transom which had a large cutout above the level of the tank, adding flaps to the stern, and adding bags.

Cutting the tank out is a little drastic really, and it must be remembered it's a very strutural part of the boat!

No, tank not holed. although some nutcase did put additional bags on it which required some axtra ugly wood being glued to it.

I think Phil put the tubes in the Hoare NSM IV.

3405. I had Phil Scott put pipe and plugs through the tank. Just helped drain the water but did not help self bail after capsize.

My NSM2 had stern pipes which did not help drain when stood but it emptied like a shoot after capsize!
