    I have a Mk 2 SD which is a beast to right after a capsize and I want to retrofit drain tubes and transom flaps. I am less concerned about whether or not use of flaps while racing is allowed and more worried about keeping the boat as a whole legitimate. (Any race I capsized it in I ended up retiring anyhow because I was out of time!). But I would still like reassurance that they now can be used.

    I have a vague idea of how this might be done. I imagine it would involve glassing or epoxying in 4.5 inch tubes through the aft bouyancy compartment and making openings in the transom and attaching the flaps as normal. Does anyone else have any ideas? IS there a kit?
