When you fish, do you troll? How fast?
No pod - I think you are seeing a white rope that makes it look like there is a break in the transom.

It is much wider than in the plans and has been modified though.

We troll for blue marlin with lures at 7-8 kts, sailfish at around 6 kts with lures/ strip bait and we live bait for wahoo, kingfish, black marlin at about 2-3 kts with small frigate mackerel or bonitos.

We also slow troll swimming dead baits for kingfish at less than 2 kts.

And slow troll strip bait in a lure with a glow stick at night for broadbill. You can also deep drop for them in the day.

A long sexy sled, for sure.

Regarding scupper tubes, are yours run similarly? About how high above the chine are yours?

These ones are just a hole through the transom. No tubes needed because I did away with a motorwell bulkhead that goes to the floor. I am currently making plugs for them. And considering elephant trunks or some sort of flap with a rubber band to keep them shut.

On my old version they were identical to yours in shape - and they passed through the side boxes to connect bulkhead to back of boat. My C19 may have been a bit heavy but they still sat a good 2 inches above the water and I ended up keeping them plugged when not on a mooring because we were forever having water round our feet and I got tired of fielding “are we sinking” questions!

My friend who built the GS28 has added those elephant trunks. He used to just plug and leave open on the mooring. But his new mooring (which is a bit more exposed) means water would come in when the front of the boat was lifted on a wave and then the little bit of water scooped in would go fwds as the wave passed the back of the boat and lifted the back - so essentially in the right conditions the rocking of the boat was a bit like a pump.

I personally think it’s very hard without some sort of plug/ flap system to not have some water come in sometimes on a small boat however high above the water the scuppers are.
