Is the center drain plug the only plug?
I recently bought a 2004 X80 with dual mcx's. I am currently fixing some issues on the boat. The main problem I have at the moment is I pull my drain plug (center) but any water accumlating in the engine compartments will not travel forward to the drain. I can not see a rear drain plug in the compartment or on the hull. What am I missing? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do not own an X80, but I have not seen any other modern Mastercraft that does not have a rear drain plug. No brass square bolt plug at the bottom center of the transom? The newer models are a black knurled plastic bolt.

You can download the X-80 manual from the MC main web site if needed.

My center plug is brass and I do see anything similar in the engine compartment. When I am under the boat I do see anything brass or black.

I am having the same problem, from what i understand there may be a drain plug on the transom. that unscrews from the outside. I may be wrong, havent been to my boat since i discovered this info. Let me know if it helps-bc i will be trying to solve the same problem this weekend.

Assuming you meant "do not" see anything else bronze or black on the underside of the boat, that may be your only one. Can you lower the tongue of the trailer enough to get the water out? Other option is to park on incline, or on top of some 2x4's to get the tires higher than the tongue support wheel.

Sorry I can't help ya.
As I only have one on my hull, lower rear under outboard.

I have an 05 x80 and thier is not a rear drain plug. (that I know of) You can pull out the Speado that sits under the driver side engine.(placstic and only hand tigh so easy to remove) I also use this when changing the oil. Hope this helps.
