another PS 205 question

despite being a boat owner for 22 years, and owning a MasterCraft for four years, it appears I know nothing about 205's! My '92 has an in-floor storage compartment forward, with a small connection to the bilge. All the nasty bilge water washes forward, but doesn't return, even if I raise the tongue of the trailer as high as possible. It looks like the hole could be plugged with some kind of threaded plug? Am I on the right track?

I bought a rubber drain plug for mine. Finding the right size was the hard part.

I think the plug looks like this:



And is sold here (I'm not sure what the deal with multiples of 5 is):
search for "Plug - Bailer"

thanks for the help. Since it's not threaded, I think I'll mosey on down to Ace Hardware tomorrow, see what they've got.

I bought one for my '96 ProStar at Bass Pro Shops. I'll look for the packaging tomorrow so can let you know the correct size.

We have the same rubber plug in our 205. Problem is the drain hole is not flush with the bottom of the storage locker/cooler so once you get water in the locker you always have water until you vacuum it out or dry with a beach towel.

I figure I'll be drying the locker frequently. I have an old shop vac that I use for water only, so it won't be a huge problem.

A car wash sponge works like a champ.

Though replacing the plug may keep water from running though the divider, the problem is that water runs past the divider between the bilge and the ski locker. There is a plate under there that is held on by 4 screws. You can get to it by removing the four screws holding down the small section of flooring surrounding the ski pylon. Once you remove the divider plate underneath, you can clean it and reapply sealant around the sides and bottom and hope for the best. I did mine, but sometimes still get a little water in the ski locker. I only keep oars in there because it gets damp and is hard to keep 100% dry.
Hope that helps.
