logic 210 think 2001 slow draining from large foredeck compartment

hi, I am new to logic boats and just purchased one used, the huge foredeck compartment after a lot of rain had a foot of water sitting in it and it took 24 hours to drain out after I puled the round plastic drain plug. I tried an electrical snake to see if I could dislodge a clog but was afraid to send too far back and get stuck. How does one open up these drains if clogged with debris?

Welcome Aboard!
Which model do you have, and I would recommend also looking in that same model section for Triumph since they are very close in design.

Best,
Dave

I have the 2002 model the drain for the huge forward compartment, the drain goes all the way to the bilge and should be made of stainless steel. You should have no problem running your snake. Mind you these older boats had a warping issue during the cooling down process, your drain just might be out of level. I normally have standing water, two reason, #1 I have a bulge in the center due to the warping issues keeps water in all 4 corners, and # 2 the fact that the drain is not at floor level. So , I always end up using portable manual hand drain pump to suck standing water out of all my compartments.

If you're talking about the Mega hatch comp. the drain runs along a channel molded into the inner hull and runs through the fuel tank compartment on it's way to the stern. There is a stainless steel tube crossmember in the fuel compartment that is right in the path of the forward compartment drain channel. It is the dumbest placement. It completely blocks the drain. Not much you can do. I put a seperate bilge pump in the mega compartment to drain it. If you look at my pics you can see what I'm referring to.

I made a post about there not being a complete drain at that large opening due to the plastic not forming a complete circle we had to put a piece of plastic in to create the drain channel for it if you look down at some of the earlier 210 logic post you’ll see that I Made one about that large drain
