Re: Drain holes??
- Go to: http://www.duckworksmagazine.com/ and Google "hull plug". You
will get 15 links. Among them is the solution you seek. Prepare a 3/4
inch block with a deep grove in the bottom at deck level from the edge
to the center. Glue at a low point. Drill through the block and the
bottom for an expanding plug (hardware store item). I will add a
sugestion. Invert a plastic basket, like strawberries come in, to keep
leaves and such from pluging the hole.
