Really? We've got three. Each needs a fair size (3/8"?) allen key to remove...

Our aft-most bilge compartment can take in rain water through the (un-plumbed) rod-holders... so that's the one we pay most attention when we're on the hard.

Our 34' Mainship III had one, aft, and it was important to remove that rascal while blocked, in case of rain or snow... 'cause that'd all end up in the engine room otherwise.
