    We contacted the dealers as we had some in our center tube.  They sent us to a welding shop that does their warrentty work.  Got it done, used an approved shop, all is well.  We had lower drains put in all three tubes at our own expense and it was very reasonable. We know where they are and can drain them at the end of every season before the freezing cold sets in.

    I only have two toons... but can imagine how a tri-toon would be difficult.

    Lower drains are nice but mine (09 Sweetwater) has a keel on each log (angle aluminum running whole length of log) which complicates where to put a bung. I use an ~$8 siphon pump from walmart. Go in through the top access bung of each log compartment. Takes about 8 minutes to siphon 5 gallons out. I'm sort of obsessive so once the cheap siphon cannot pickup anymore, I use a west marine crankcase pump (used for I/O's to remove old oil). It works the same way but has a smaller stiff tube which allows me to get most if not all of the water out.
