I often have visible water in my Spyder near the aft drain plugs while fishing and at rest is this normal?

Where many of our boats are self-bailing, the Spyder FX19 and FX17 do not have this ability when occupied and while trolling at very low speeds or at rest. By design, the cockpit has minimal slope which allows for aSpyder’s low profile in the water.  Given this, all new owner kits provide plugs which should be inserted when fishing, low speed trolling, poling, or at rest with passengers. While underway, the cockpit will self bail and the drain plugs can be removed while docked and unoccupied.

Should you require a self-bailing vessel, we recommend our FX Bay Boats, LX Center Consoles, or SX Offshore models.
