Removing Drain Plug With Boat On Lift

I have a 2019 Robalo 226 Grand Cayman.  I have it on a boat lift, and have a question... Unless I get in the water, it is impossible to remove the drain plug, directly under the engine.  Are the drains in the decking that remove the water out the sides of the boat good enough to remove rainwater, water from boat washing, or does the drain plug need to come out?  Thanks for any suggestions in advance!

Not a Robalo, but my dad's boat stays on a lift.  Deck drains allow for most water to exit boat.  We just turn on the bilge pump prior to dropping lift and it may run a minute or two to get any other water out.  Trying to remove his garboard drain plug is a pain and we found it not worth the aggravation.
