I would not, the less holes in your boat the better is a general rule. Putting a bunch of holes in your cockpit rim gives that area a better chance of failure. If you do anything I would put a proper drainplug in and would not even do that with a playboat.

well i bought a project original used and it had one hole at the top of the rim it never leaked threw it and made it a hell of alot easier to drain and when i look at the jackson boats they have like 4 holes 2 on the top rim and 2 on the bottom so thats why i asked!

Yeah, drill that bitch. I would copy how Jackson does it. They put a hole where it has no affect on watertightness but allows you to get water out better when shaking it back and forth over your head.
