If I remember right Gregg did it. This is a link to the thread where he installed a trim tab but the wire over it is for using it as an intake.

If the guys in my family decided to pull the drain plug to let some water in on purpose... I'd have them take me to the shore to get out first. Maybe I'm a wimp or maybe I'm missing something here, but it sounds too much like a recipe for sinking and I like to stay dry.

If you are talking about your center drain plug, then YES, I did it on my '95 PS205. Here is what I did.

I took a male-male NPT pipe that was about 3-inches long and threaded from the inside of the boat into the female threads inbedded into the hull of the boat. I then threaded a brass 90 degree ball value onto the pipe. This gave me the ability to turn the flow of water off. Next, I thread a Rule 1000 GPH bilge pump onto the ball valve. Finally, a 1" hole was connected to the bilge and feed two Fly Hi Side sacs. It worked great. I had another bilge pump for dumping the water out of the sacs.

Is that what you were inquiring about?
