Default No drain?

Been looking at some boats for sale.
Anyone ever seen a boat with NO drain hole?
14' fiberglass semi-v, unknown make/model.
No drain... thought it was kinda weird myself but...?

No plug to forget. Excellent idea...

Yeah... I figured "no big deal". The kid selling it said he just tips it up to dump any rain water. I figure a couple big sponges on board...

Any drawback to a drainless boat that I'm not seeing??

No drain No big deal really had 2 boats like that yrs ago one glass and a aluminum just used a wax milk cartin (no scratch) in aluminum & had hand pump & sponge/rag in other. my present aluminum boat has a plug but its assback wards as plug goes in from outside/back of boat. No real room inside to turn it and the whole idea of a plug in my "mind" is so if water in boat u go about 5-10 mph so nose is up pull plug(from inside) and watch water run out without having to hang half out off boat and then dropping plug in lake. Always see couple boats every year at ramp with owner rushing to put boat back on trailer cause plug not in and foot of water & rising fast in boat.
