How does the deck drain 2013 VTX

Recommended Posts

Hey all - new to Malibu, I have a 2013 VTX.  As part of my looking around in and out and upside down through the boat learning the systems and orientating myself with the layout and mechanics, I can't help but be curious about the drain path of the passenger deck.  Say a wave comes over onto the deck, how does it drain to the bilge?  Just works its way around through cracks and storage areas or is there a deck drain I've totally missed?  From first glance seems water would take long time to find its way to the bilge from the deck.  Every boat I've had had a very obvious deck drain to the bilge or out the transom through a scupper.

Just around the places where the different parts of the hull come together.  You shouldn't need a deck drain in a vtx.  I will tell you that if you do dip it, most of the water gets soaked up by the carpet and cushions.
