First season with my new 04 dauntless 180. The stern live well has the plunger pole device but the problem is it seem to get itself knocked loose. I assume its the combination of being full of water and the wave action when you run. Of course everything drains out. Not good when you have it full of $2 eels and the day is cut short.
Its really a poory executed design. My buddy's boat has the same type system but the plunger has about a 3 inch boot that holds real firm. Dauntless drain does a quick bend so there is no room to extend the boot.

Any ideas to tighten this thing up? Who makes the thing?

Same with my old Conquest. I chunked the plastic standpipe into a lathe and turned it down to fit snugly into the drain hole. BillS
