I have a 2004 ps190, every time I wash the boat interior my battery box fills up with water
can I drill a hole in the bottom corner safely so it drains out.Don't want to drill through the bottom,LOL

I remember reading someone else who drilled a hole and found that whatever drained out didn't drain into the bilge, so you may not want to do that. I think the only other solution would be to find or make a battery box cover that would cover the entire box so water couldn't get in. I was thinking along the lines of a square tupperware container turned upside down, and strapped down.

Drilling a hole in the battery box would defeat the purpose of having the battery contained in a leak-proof container so acid couldn't leak into the bilge.
