    That's gonna be a nice ride!
    So the bulkheads look to be capped. I think both are drains. One would drain the live well when the plug is pulled, the other would be the recirculation over flow. The pumps in the stern is a simple bilge and the garden hose one should be tossed and replaced with a through hull pump that has a screen on the outside of the transom for your live well.

    If this in inside the live well the lower cap would be the "plug" the upper cap could be replaced with a threaded 90 degree fitting and a short pipe pointed upward as high as you want the full line to be. Water will over flow into the open pipe.
    If those fittings are below water on the outside of the boat I can see pushing water into the live well when the boat is under way, so you should watch for that first time out.Name:  tapatalk_1605458833186.jpeg

    I called the basspro here and think we got it all figured out. It pulled from the rear.

    Filled the boat today to kill anything alive in the boat and to check to see how many leaks. I have two that require attention and the rest are small rivet leaks.

    Live well holds water but I would like to seal the whole thing if possible ..

    Boats been rewired, new bilge, new aerator, new switches, stereo, new batteries. Front trolling motor works great. No carpet yet , still deciding on a conversion. Had on maple leaf and the odessa reservoir about 9 hours. Fishes just fine...

    The boat is a goin. I've been out in it about 20 times. It leaks lil but it's fine. It ain't pretty but it fishes just fine. Considering a conversion, not sure yet.Name:  20210723_070555.jpg
