I just went to launch my 1999 DAUNTLESS 14 only to discover that bilge drain plug is not on board. I just bought boat and assumed it was with the other hardware. I stopped by WEST Marine; they had a one-inch screw-on but it was too big.

What is the correct plug and where I can get one ASAP?

Is the Bilge plug a necessary item on at Dauntless?

The good news is that it should not have spoiled a day on the water - I hope you went out without it. That's the beauty of Boston Whaler hulls.

Check for a replacement at your local dealer.

This is a dealer near you that was provided by Boston Whaler through their Website (a useful tool) located at

Perhaps I should retract that statement about the Whaler Web tool being useful. I find it difficult to believe that the nearest dealer to you (being so close to NYC) is 75 miles away and to the south.

Perhaps you can call them today for the correct size and check a more local marine supply store to see if they have it in stock.

You should be able to figure out the right size at, though I'm having some trouble
getting it to work today.

Get two and keep the spare on board.

Chuck - thanks for the site...I was thinking about that, but couldn't get it to work either...thought maybe that it was no longer in operation...

I got to work from my laptop which has an
older version of the AutoCad drawing viewer on it. It wasn't
much help.

Can you call the previous owner? Maybe the plug is in the
glove box of his truck or some such.

Is the drain threaded?

Thanks for the reply. My guess is that the owner put the plug into his pocket or truck without thinking. Called him and he denies.
Oh well, will call BW and get two.

I was wondering if the older, freeware version of UBBthreads had that capability. Know I know!

LOL! Thought I knew until I read the related thread in Meta-Forum. Guess not.
