I'm restoring a 28' Sport fisherman and noticed that the shower drains straight into the bilge. It appears there should be a hose connected to the underside of the drain and this should lead into the sump basin where the pump is located. I see a hole in the side of the basin close to the shower drain but there's no hose or fitting coming through it. Has anyone else experienced this? It seems like the builder forgot to attach a hose.

I'm trying to decide how to correct this. It's not easy because I don't have access underneath the drain fitting. Any suggestions appreciated.

Could you remove the drain, run a hose "from" the sump basin back to the disconnected drain, connect the hose, then drop the drain back down to the deck and reattach? I' haven't had mine out but if there's a nipple on the bottom of the drain then that might just work...

Thanks for the reply Kevin. Good idea, except the drain hole is just a 1/2" ID brass or copper pipe with a flange that seems to be epoxied in and there's no way to remove it without breaking or drilling it out. I did find this drain on eBay which it think will work. I'll need to drill out the drain hole to a larger diameter and connect a hose which I can feed through to the sump.
