drain plug in boat

I own a 1983 Sylvan 16 foot aluminum boat(not sure of the model, but it is similar to the seamaster from pics that I have seen). Anyways I was wondering. In the rear there is the drain plug and immediately to the left(as you are looking at the rear) there is another smaller hole. What is that hole used for? and does it require another smaller drain plug? btw..There is a third hole which is covered with a screen and I know that is for water intake for the live well, but I am uncertain about that smaller hole to the left of the drain plug. Thanks in advance for your help answering this question.

A good manufacturer will provide access points for wiring (depth sounders/fish finders) or other accessories (aerated bait buckets/etc).... If the hole is being used for nothing - just find a plug to stick in it.
