    I haven’t crawled over one of these boats yet but I believe the deck drains similar to Yamaha.

    Here’s a pic of the deck drains and high flow gates...

    On both sides of the hull towards to stern you can see two large drain fittings, two per side, just above the water line. I think those connect to each deck drain. I’m not certain though but that seems like that is how they do it.

    If those are scupper outlets, it would make a lot of sense and would be a major step forward. The 245/255 bowrider I considered at some point did not have that, instead had drains into the bilge, with the bilge pump tasked with removing all water.

    It seemed crazy as Scarab inherited with SeaDoo line and we all know that little SeaDoos could do the "sub" move, requiring self bailing deck. I was very surprised that the Scarabs I looked at had no scupper...

    If the new 255 Open remedies that - kudos! and apologies for spreading misinformation. Although I would still like a confirmation it is the real deal, maybe someone will post the details and pics from a boat show?

    Good Afternoon Jetboaters,
    This is my first post since I joined the forum a couple of months ago.
    Today, my 2019 scarab 255 open id (twin 250's) arrived to Kuwait . I will be posting some pics next week and videos (if permitted) here.
    I am looking forward to see how it will perform.
    For now, be safe and enjoy boating.

    :)
