Author Topic:   Transom Plugs with Check Valves?

Woke up at 01:00 this morning by spectacular electrical storm and torrential rains. Drove down to the slip to let the water out of the boat ( I always forget and leave the transom plug in).

It occurred to me that there must be some source for a replacement transom plug with a one-way check valve in it that would alleviate the need to worry about the plug.

Do any of you guys know of a source for these plugs?

I installed one of these on my boat last winter:

I got it from a local boat dealer.

Your link doesn't go anywhere useful, kdc2.

Sorry about the bad link, fellas. I was trying to link directly to the product page, but I guess that it doesn't work.

The link Backlash provides takes you to the Seasense website. Then you have to click on Hardware and Plugs, then Plugs, then Drain-One-Way Safety Plug.

I really like this product. It is a very robust piece of hardware. It was also pretty cheap, at about $12.00 CDN.

I had to modify my existing drain tube to make it all work together.

kdc did you put this on a Montauk or similar type hull? I can't imagine how it would let water out without the boat being under way but I've been wrong before.

ASIDE: This SEASENSE.COM website is a good example of how not to design a website. Here is a company with product information on their website, but no one can give someone else a link to it. I wonder if their marine products work as well as their website? You'd have to assume they would, otherwise they'd be out of business.
