Default Sea Hunt Triton 160 - anybody got one?

I just purchased a 1999 Sea Hunt Triton 160 CC with a 2000 johnson 50HP motor. For my intended use (inland creeks, rivers) I think this boat will be excellent. Anybody got one of these boats? I'd love to hear your experiences. I took mine across Charleston Harbor yesterday in a 10 knot breeze...got a little wet but oh so fun

Additionally I have a question regarding the stern bilge area. If anyone else has one of these boats, I'd love to know if deep in the bilge area of your boat is there a working drain hole in the port side, just adjacent to the transom? and if so, does water freely flow from the port under-gunwhale area through this drain to the bilge?

On mine, the drain exists but nothing comes out of it -and- over under the port gunwhale, the water stays pooled. I think they glassed over what was supposed to be a drain slot for that area. Consequently, water collects under the port gunwhale in my boat unless I park it on a big hill and let it drain out

I already had to remove some extra glass/sealant that was blocking the anchor locker drain pipe so it wouldn't surprise me if i need to cut through some glass to complete the port drain tube into the bilge. Thanks in advance for any insight Tom
