Scuppers

Recommended Posts


Hello Ken.. Started out with larger flapper style but with transom rake the flapper would not stay closed.. after raising the transom it was easier to use the ping pong ball type.. worked great this past winter on a ninety day cruise in Florida.. had a three inch drop vertical with horizontal dischage.. copit stayed dry even on launching from trailer when transom in water well above the discharge level.

Hi Henry,

That is a good endorsement for the ping pong ball style of scupper.  I have to continually remind myself that this is not going to be an offshore boat and getting swamped is pretty unlikely.  Haven’t computed the volume difference between the 2 styles but the flapper scuppers clearly have the ability to dump more water in a hurry.  I guess enough is enough....

 

As i continue my build I often look at pictures of your Bluejacket.  Full of good ideas and beautiful craftsmanship. Thanks.

cheers,

Ken

Will be taking note of this as well. Thanks, Henry!
