Default Strange drain holes

Hi, and happy Friday! Im the lucky owner of a Mariah SC 25 2007 model, and I've been starting to hear some noises from these drain holes in the back of the U-saloon in the back.

Behind the cover, there is a floating ball which seems to float. When there's a lot of water in the boat, I'm not even able to shove any water down in it since it seems full.

Any thoughs on what this is?

    Looks like a drain hole.... take the cover off, run something thru it to ensure that it isn't blocked. Check to make sure your outdrive bellows isn't split or cracked and leaking water into the bilge.

    Thanks! It seems like it's a rubber ball inside the drain hole. Not sure what it's supposed to do, but if I poke something through the water comes out.

    Don't think any water is seeping in there. Then I would have seen it in the back of the boat.

    The ball probably acts like a float to stop water from coming back up thru the drain. Sea Fox did some strange things with their version of the Mariah boat...
