Thinking of adding slots for drainage............has anyone done this? Front drain does not allow for sand and yuk to drain out.

 

Any recommendations for  adding drain slots?

A dremel with a router-like base and a guide for a straight line is one way. Another is a biscuit joiner, though not as common for most. Just make sure the seat base is clear from the cutting area.

I'm not sure why Native changed it. Clean out is difficult with bow drain hole.

I drilled two 1/4" holes close to 3" apart and used coping saw blade to form the slot.

I used a drill today to make a slot for drainage. Only made it about an inch long and may may it longer in the future. It's right behind the anchor trolley rope and can not be seen. Going to work much better than the front drain.
