I think a drain plug is allowed, but not sure that it is necessary.  However, if you get rain you will need some way of draining the pan.

Any idea on how one would be made? Im sure they can't be bought. I was thinking of doing a washer and o ring on either side of the fiberglass and a bolt and nut to hold the two together.

I recommend a bait plug they are smaller than a normal boat plug and don't exert a ton of pressure.
Choose your location based on low point for drainage and distance away from exhaust.

I do not recommend these as they are plastic and don't seal the hole.

Ace has various sizes of rubber plugs. Ask the hardware desk to show you where they are.

Actually the plugs from kurveygirl work very well and they are awesome as far as customer service goes. And no I am not sponsored! You drill a small hole big enough to get a dremel tool or a round file and slowly make the hole bigger. The key is keeping the hole a little on the small side so the plug is tight. I have had more than one "situation" with crew members and leaks and the plugs have held tight to both oil and coolant. If its raining and you have to pop them out I have done it in a hurry with gloves on and a screwdriver. Hope this helps.

Tommy glad to hear that the ones I had seen were not the norm and plugs are actually liquid tight.

This is what I use. I also safety wire the inside of the plug to keep it in there.
