Ray, not sure if yours is the same as mine was but probably is. Originally there were 6 deck drains that looked like shower drains. They connected to hoses that ran below deck and connected to through hulls on the bottom of the rub rail. When we bought the boat 4 of the hoses were cracked and leaked most of the rain water into the bilge. I fiberglassed over them and put scuppers so the water went straight overboard. Hope this helps.
In the first picture you can see one of the drains near the aft of the deck. In the second one you can see our solution.
PS Those pics were taken within the first month of having the boat. She looks a lot better now.
