Drains in/thru timber
Both my IG, and a previous Masters 34, have water drain holes passing through wood. A silly design idea IMO. Timber drains surrounding the aft lazarette hatch is common to both. The IG has them inside and outside the window frames, at the windscreen corners, and on the FB to drain water which gets under the tonneau and seats.
If they block(dirt, feathers etc), water accumulates, rot ensues. Even if they don`t block, they eventually rot, the water they drain is fresh. For places like the windscreen corners there is not really enough "meat" to install a plastic or copper tube,they reduce diameter too. Dripping thin epoxy wood densifier or hardener down the drain,(Everdure here, CPES I think in US), may help.
So, apart from complaining, what solutions are there? Eternal vigilance with a pipe cleaner or wire is a good start. What do other builders do?
