I recently added a 4 stroke motor to my 94 Proline. The 4 stroke is about 100lbs more than the stock 2 stroke. I contacted Proline before buying and they said the transom could support the extra weight.

But now she sits a little lower in the water and water is constantly coming in through the scuppers cause there under water now. If I raise the scuppers will it still drain? Do they make one way scuppers? Any other fixes? Remove scuppers?

scuppers are supposed to be 1 way.

try the Flo max scuppers

Ok makes sense... I'm using wrong terminology.... They are not scuppers, they are just free flowing drains... But when the boats not moving they are under the water line and take on water. I think one solution is to plug them when I'm not underway.

You should just put a scupper over the holes. They make them in a bunch of sizes and shapes. If you plug them do you have another way for water to drain off the deck?

Yeah that's the only way it drains... So those flo max scuppers attach how??

The base screws into the hull, the part that traps the ball gets rotated 90* to lock on.

One mine there are rubber flaps on the outside.. so the pressure of the water hold them tight.

On both my boats they are above the waterline, like they are supposed to be.

I bought a Scout 175 Sportfish with a YAM 90 4-stroke on it. I had done a lot of reading online about this boat and others like it. There were a lot of comments about water coming thru the scuppers. It has a scupper valves of some sort. Water does come onto the deck, especially with everyone near the back of the boat, but it really isn't a big deal at all. I just use a plug when stopped and pull the plugs when I get underway IF there is some water on the deck. It is a totally overblown problem in my opinion.

Get FlowMax scuppers and your problem will be solved.

The in-line scupper is interesting. My scuppers are below the waterline too. I've made some covers that screw on and seal them for BBQing in a slip but they aren't a perfect seal and you wouldn't want to forget to remove them. Having the scuppers below the waterline is probably my least favorite thing about my boat. If you take a lot of water on deck they become critical. I wouldn't want to further restrict the flow.

Thinking of trying these, in line scuppers. They might solve my problem. Anyone ever use them?

you are going to have issues with junk.. pieces of bait, line, leaves getting stuck in the flap.. the ping balls are best but still leave a bit to be desired... i have the ping pong balls, I hate water on my deck so i use plugs when drifting and pull them to wash down the bloody deck while under way
