Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
These are built into the vessel from the factory and are designed that way for functionality, the idea is to get the water from that area all to a central bilge pump, this then sucks the water out of the hull and gets rid of it. If you were to block these holes the water would store in that locker area and not be removed without manual removal and or removing the plug. If you wished to still do it anyways then you can simply use a hull drain plug or even a plug for a kayak for sit ons that block water from coming in it, any type of a rubber plug would work. But again please remember that it is designed this way to work correctly.
Thank you!
