I ALWAYS do is pressure test the water cooling piping, using Mk I pressure pump..... me lungs!
Damn it! It leaks!
The pickup pipe is held in place with a stainless steel Allen screw... screwed into plastic.... hmmm!
OK, back to plan B -  'drilling the plastic and pushing the pipe straight through.'
A another 2 hour search of my ' save those bit' boxes but no 5mm tube, ordered a bit off fleabay.

The hatch is quite thick moulding and I can't quite work out if it's once piece foam mould thing or something else.... or if it even floats!
( I lost a hatch once so always fit a lanyard or flotation. )
I just need to fling it in the bath.......  but it not that time of year, yet!

Back outside, the hull has two drain points.



Hi Martin,
I think that you will find that the upper one is not a drain but is intended for the Rx aerial, there will be a hole through it allowing the wire to fit. (only for receivers with longer aerial wires.) This gets the aerial as high as possible.
