Re: [BaylinerBuccaneerGroup] 240 Keel Draining
- I was one who did it and it drained for several days,. I also inserted a 3/8 piece of copper tubing down into it from below the steps and used the hole to peep in and see i was clearing the bottom about 3/4 inch. In the future I can pump it out and if that tubing clogs air pressure down will blow it out.

Hi Guys, I would like to thank you for giving me the confidence to drain my keel as I had not thought of doing this. I have just started working on my 240 and I am using this site to search for info on my project. The dimensions are one inch up from keel bottom and two inches in from the stern end. I initially drilled a 1/8th inch hole, and a drip or two came out, then I saw it was a trickle and I drilled a 1/2 inch hole as in your instructions and at least a gallon or so poured out. I'll try to add photos for this fix.
PS I got it leveled last week.
