cockpit drain/scupper

So I did a search and found some nice pics, but not seeing a hose size. My problem is not so much hose size, as it is that I don't have a scupper. We finally solved the vast majority of my wet bilge problem by dealing with leaking raw water thru hull. Now I still have a small amount when it rains or when I wash down the hull. I looked for the first culprit and did not have to look far.

The cockpit drains do not have a scupper, I can see the hose sticking up through the cockpit floor with what looks like 5200. Now I did not take too much notice of this before because there was so much water in the bilge before and there is both a full dodger and Bimini.

Now that bilge is dry, I really want to keep it that way!! I looked on Defender and they have a 1 1/4 inch scupper and also allow for 1 1/4 inch drain. Nothing on Catalina direct. Anyone have this problem and what was solution. I have a 1982 and I think I have to access by removing plywood under quarter berth to access quadrant and drains yes? Thanks for help.

I'm not sure it this helps but I have an 87 and the hose size is 1 5/8 inch. Here is a picture of the hose in the background, in the foreground is the same size hose but it is for the engine exhaust. I replaced it 6 years ago, shortly after buying the boat.

Thanks, when I got in there I realized that the drains are glassed in. They were dry and hose looks good. On to another source. I found it!
