Makes sense for builders to add this. In my situation it is a Mexican made panga and it seems to actually be thicker in the drain area. I need to figure out what I should do as launch day is coming up. My old panga had a plastic drain installed and I did not like having the rubber plug. I'm trying to have a solid plug that won't let water into the core.
