[br]Does anyone have any specifications on the placement of the soon to be required transom port. I would like to know where to cut the hole. I have not seen any DYI instructions like I have seen for the required bow flotation bags.

[br]A 4" round hole in the transom, which can be opened to let water out of a swamped Scot, by towing the boat with a special bridle.
On the FSSA home page it will explain the new rules for transom port and bow flotation that go into effect in early 2009 for sanctioned events.
The spirit is to make it easier to empty a boat that has been swamped after a capsize.
