    Question - does anyone know if the 38' Ocean Yacht has 1 or 2 drain plugs? In the manual, it states there is one in the bow hatch (near shower bilge). Previous owner patched over lots of things down there and boat is in water now. Thanks for the help

    Mine is a 42' Ocean. I only have one pretty much the same location as yours. Most boats only have one drain plug.

    i probably should have updated my post----
    i did find the second drain plug. on the 38' ss, there is a second one in the bow bilge area. I couldn't see it - it was under the 1 1/8" bilge line. When i pulled the boat out, i saw the plug on the outside which then i investigated more. Thank you for responding - much appreciated

    So, I'm a little confused. Yes we both have one forward of the engine room/ head area. But where are your two located then? Just wondering.

    i have one under the cockpit hatch (center) (main drain) and in the floor (bow) of the bedroom. the bow drain is a smaller plug. Funny is in my manual , it only shows the 1 drain in the bow on the diagram.

    Some one could have added one.
    You can get them from a good marine supply.
    Perhaps water would collect there over the winter while on the hard .
    Perhaps it just collected in general ...
    When your bilge pumps are off while out of the water for the winter rain water could collect back there whereas if the bilge pump‘s were on while in the water that will get pumped overboard.

    Who knows ..
