1997/350 clogged scupper

Good evening
My 1997/350 has a clogged port side stern scupper. The one in the cockpit next to the transom. Hard clog. Does any other system share the large oval drain exit on the side of the boat. I am going to blow air in reverse flow of the stain to try and in clog the scupper.

If I recall I have a large bilge pump that uses that same discharge on the Stbd side.

I had the same "hard clog" issue a few years ago on our 2003 390 port side scupper.......turned out to be a plastic water bottle cap, which will go down the scupper drain hole in the cockpit but not thru the drain hose fittings further down the line.

Not sure why this is funny to me, but it is.
