I have a 17' Polar Saltwater Series CC and the scuppers (From the factory) are below the water line. I am the thrid owner and when I bought the boat someone had filled the holes up with silicone, I mean COMPLETELY filled them up. So I dug out the silicone plugs and bought new ball scuppers and they are letting in way to much water for my liking. I mean sure I can give her gas, get on plane and remove it all but then I am back to water in the boat when anchored. It would do no good to move scuppers up above the water line as this would then be above the deck. I am considering just plugging them back up, I mean I only do inshore and allot of inshore boats don't have scuppers, oppinions ??????????
