Default Kenner Scuppers

Anyone own or know of water entering through the transom scuppers on the Kenner Vision series boats? I get small amounts of water coming in through my scups when i have the boat in reverse...or have xtra weight/people in the back of the boat. No water enters when weight is equally distributed. Its not enough to make me nervous nor is it anything that wont drain once weight is shifted or boat is put in gear. I can't find much on this and know some of you have this type of boat. I find this somewhat annoying. Anyone have any suggestions....I like the idea of scuppers for draining but would rather it be only a drain hole.

..I believe the rolled hulls have 4 different plugs along the back ......whether those are scuppers or not i cant recall but if they are they're alot smaller than these. In no way shape or form could my boat plug fill this scupper. this is a 3" hole i believe

Homerun: What are you plugging them with from the inside? Would you mind posting a pic? Where can you get these plugs?

Shaw: Your Blue Wave has 'em too? Do you get water coming in the back? I'm not sure what im gonna do yet....But from what i've read......get the ping pong scuppers that have the holes on the bottom and not the back....ex:

the rabuds will work fine as long as there's no trash stuck in them, pathfinders had this problem for years also.

isold mine 6 mths ago. sorry no picks. it is the same size plug that you use on your boat(the main one at bottom of boat at bottom of transom) just go buy 2 more and they will plug from inside of transom. opposite side of transom of scupper holes(outside). hope this helps. everytime i went fishing i had 3 plugs(1 for outside and 2 for the inside for the self bailing drains)

You can get rubber plumbing plugs at any harware store that act just like and look like a boat plug. Multiple diameters available.
