Default 2000 century 1901 bay - water in hull, wont drain

hey, so i have a 2000 century 1901 bay, i bought the boat last summer from a marina, everything was fine with the boat for awhile, well in november i went to use the boat and i opened the hatch in the floor directly in front of the console. I think this was meant to be a fish box of some sort. its holding water in this area. i have parked the boat on a hill, trailered it 20 miles and it still is holding water in the hull in this area. i assume some is draining as after a 5-7 miles tow i was still leaking some water out of the back drain.

my question is is there some sort of drain that connects this front hatch area to the back that is possibly clogged? any ideas on how to get it to properly drain?

thanks in advance.

Is there a hole in the bottom of the compartment?
If not, get out the shop vac and cleanup, then check seals/get a boat cover, etc.

i stuck my head down in it the compartment with a flash light, i did not see anything that stuck out as a drain or any debris in it. the seal on the hatch is no longer good so thats obviously how it got water in it. im sure living its life uncovered does not help. a cover will be ordered soon for it.

Default 2201 Bay

That's where the trolling motor batteries went in my 2201- and it had transom-style drain plug.

good luck-
