New Rain Spouts for Kadey Krogen’s

We have been struggling to come up with an adequate yet esthetically pleasing means of getting rain water off the upper decks. Water that ran over the edge then dropped on the passageway below. The yard I use has come up with this add on that screws onto the upper deck and extends to just short of the run rail so the spout should not hit any tall pickings or dock walls etc. I designed it with them and added a silicon rubber discharge lip which gives a little more wiggle room with ropes or walls etc.
Prior to this I had cut out a waterway into the lip of the upper deck and faired it and the yard painted it. Click image for larger version

Looks like a good solution to the problem.

Yeah, common issue with KK’s. Very well thought out solution. I’d love to copy it but the upper deck on the Manatee is too wide. Any protrusion at all would be chopped off by pilings on even the slightest roll. It’s so helpful to funnel the upper deck water OVER the side instead of onto the lower deck, or in the case of Manatees, the saloon and amidships window frame channels.

Additionally, water always seems to find a low point on any old KK boat deck. I’ve often considered carving some extra wedges out of the upper rail just as you did. The factory ones never seem to be at the lowest point of the deck. I mean, just look at this ridiculous solution to my own drainage issue (pic below). At least this way, if it gets torn off, I’m only out about 6” of garden hose.

Anyway, great work!

My solution on NP42. I either catch in buckets for use in fresh water flush toilet, or have it run out of cockpit scubbers.

I've been wondering about this myself as my pilothouse roof drains directly onto the side decks at the front and rear corners. I'm considering extending the PH roof back over the rear deck. Then try to direct the rain water off the rear corners with lips similar to Sangraal.

Ours is simple and directional

Household 50mm PVC tube glassed into the top level and coming out flush with the bottom.
Push fit 50mm PVC elbow and a foot of PVC tube on the underside directing flow where we want.
Additional PVC fittings push fit onto that with flexible hose for filling water tanks

Those downspouts are really clean. Nice work. The PO of my boat did a nice solution as well. He put nice screened drains in the top and plumbed through the roof supports to stainless steel spouts. (Apologies if I'm not using the correct nautical terminology).

I used copper tubing and vinyl hose to drain my two roofs.

Flared the tubing and epoxied into holes at low points.

Hoses drain water past gunnels.

Sangrall, were these custom made? I’d be interested in a set for my KK42

I have thru-hulls up high and aft that drain the flybridge, had the "green drool" marks down the sides.

The solution for me was to roll a half-pipe spout out of 2" wide clear Gorilla tape, stuck that into the floor of the thru-hull, no more green drool! Its clear, barely noticeable, sticks out a couple of inches, flexes if bumped into.

Sounds like a reasonable, economical approach, but a little abstract. How about a photo? Thanks in advance. All great ideas above!!
