  • Scuppers

    I have a 1983 228 Cuddy with a 225 V-6 Johnson. when at rest the scuppers are slightly under water. Is this typical?

    Is this typical? For these old fat girls with soaked foam and too much weigh in their azz (stern) the answer is yes. We moved the batteries on our 250 from stern to under the helm and gained almost an inch or more at the water line at stern. Our scuppers weren't.t under prior to the move but the livewell overflow was under and backfilled it. Suggest considering getting weight out of the stern by relocating the batteries for starter. See if you can move other things like coolers afterward for better weight distribution.

        Thanks. I have the tank out now and don't see any wet foam. I really thought there would be some.

          Does anyone know where the waterline was in relation to the transom scuppers when the boat was new. (Absent of any wet foam?)

              Look for the brochure of your model hull on the site. I believe it tells you where the waterline would be when manufactured.

                Thanks for the suggestion keyman. I am moving the batteries to the cabinets inside the cuddy.

                Waiting on the new fuel tank now.

                  On the home page of ClassicMako are links to the brochures and you might find pictures there in a brochure for your year hull. Google images is a great tool as well.
