Re: Boat ?

I can access mine from the inside, so that's how I plug it. A couple years ago a friend and I met at A-Res where he brought his boat. He plugged it from the outside before leaving his house. You guessed it - true story - the plug fell out, prob from road vibrations, and he didn't check before launching. Luckily he had a spare plug and a bail bucket -

Re: Boat ?

The plug for my boat is not accessible from the inside without removing the floor and then snaking your hand around the gas tank. I suppose you could take a sawzall to the raised deck and get at it that way, but it's a bit hard on the back of the boat! Been plugging it from the outside and never had a problem. That's kind of why the plug is screwable, so you can adjust the width so it stays snug when in position. It's also why the boat has a bilge pump.

I keep the plug inside in my Gheenoe in Florida. There's no raised floor in that boat, so the plug is directly accessible. Nice to be able to pull it and drain the boat when it's on plane.

Anyway, it works both ways.

Best regards,

Dogwood

Outside is fine... Mine is plastic and hangs when out with a collar so it is always there.

If it one that has a L thing on it then just make sure that is facing up and not down.. My buddy has a lund and has lost a few as it gets pulled out. Tucked behind the hull so it isn't getting wash and no problems.
