The 'main' drain tube in my montauk has some corrosion on the outward end (exterior of the boat), and the local dealer seems to only have plastic ones that fit the 2 tubes in the motor well. Anyone know where I can find the original copper styles?

sorry, just took it out. It is brass and again is the hull drain tube. Thanks in advance.

I got some a while back from the local BW dealer nearby. They come longer than needed, and have to be cut to the size you need. Outraged

You can get them at any good marine supply.... but a word of caution>>> they are hard to seal well, use a lot of care. I had a 13 that was soaked, the leak proved to be the drain tube. After drying the foam out as best I could, I re-bedded the new tube with West System. Sandblast or rough sand the exterior of the tube for good adhesion!

Lauderdale Marina in Ft Lauderdale has all of these brass tube sizes in stock, and the tool you need to install them. They'll rent it for $10, or sell you one for $35. Give them a call.

Thanks to all. West Marine only carried the plastic tube for the engine well tubes, but I will try some marina shops. Marine Max in Clearwater only had the same things (whaler shop), but I don't think the guy knew what he was talking about. My wife handled the transaction and knew exactly what to ask for, but he sent her away with a 4" plastic tube and some 4200. He didn't believe it was 9" and brass.

I am planning on calling both the Lauderdale shop and the Twin cities marina someone mentioned in an earlier thread.
