I used three drill bits to get this job done. The first was a small twist bit with a 90-degree angle attachment on my drill that I used from inside the bilge at the lowest point to drill a locator hole through the hull. On this Watkins 27 that hole was on the top, port side of the keel. This will be the bottom of the hole for the garboard drain.
