Drain plugs on houseboats

Where are the drains plugs on this houseboat?

Where are the drains plugs on this houseboat?

Drain Plugs on houseboats are generally to let water out, but sometimes "drain plugs" can let water in. Does anyone know where the drain plugs are located on a 43', 1975 nautaline houseboat?

I have recently taken ownership of this Nautaline house boat that was a victim of the flooding this year . It was stored on land, and water came up into the boat through the drains.

This will be my winter houseboat restoration project, hoping to have it ready to hit the water again by spring .

Thanks, Gary.

Well Gary, congratulations on your houseboat purchase. If I remember correctly, the drain plugs are on the keel, near the rear of the houseboat. They generally are a brass plug,

If you're interested to read a houseboat manual, follow the link to see the Nautaline houseboat manual that we have available.

Good luck with the restoration, and may you have her in the water next spring.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their houseboat drain plug experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found at the bottom of this page.

Thanks again for sharing, IAN from all-about-houseboats
