Default How to drain Front Fish Box 86’ 20’ SF

We have had some rainy days here on LI in last few weeks and my fish box has about 2 inches of water sitting in it. Why is the best way to drain it without putting it on a trailer? I keep her in the water all year and was wondering if everyone pulls the plug when running on a plane or if that part is still Uly Der water. The drain goes down though the hull below the water line. I leave a plug in at all times and don’t want to pull it if it’s only going to let water in vs draining. Any help would be appreciated. Also has anyone set this up to drain into the bilge? When did you put the new drain hole if you did?
Thanks for the help.

With no waves, or you might get a shower.

Assuming the same as my ‘74 20 SF, i pull the plug so it will drain when in the slip. Rain water from down pours will find its way in. Water only lays in the area just at the top of the thru hull. Before I leave , I plug it so salt water doesnt shoot through the hole. Typically use it for storage as I have a cooler and kill box in the transom if needed.

And when all else fails don't forget the shop vac
