boat leak where plug goes in

8 posts in this topic

Okay, I was getting all kinds of water in my boat so last night I filled it up with water with the plug in. I noticed that the piece the plug goes into (not sure what that is called) wiggles back and forth a little and is loose. Water drains out the bottom of that piece so I'm assuming that is where all my water is getting in as well. Anybody know where I coudld replace that piece from or would I be okay either siliconing around that piece or using some waterweld product to seal it?

you can see if a new plug would work. I would try that first and if that dont silicone it. you can get plugs at home depot, fleet farm, wally mart etc..

I call that piece the bung hole. You can take the boat to a welding shop and have it welded back tight for a perment repair.

Sounds good, I'm pretty sure it's not the plug, but as efgh calls it the "bung hole" :-) I can actually see the water coming out between the boat and the bung hole, not the plug. I think I'll silicone it or use some of the jb weld waterweld product to see if that takes care of it for now.

That would be a good temp fix, but would look into having it welded in the off season. Probably wouldn't cost a ton.

JB Weld and call it done.

I am assuming your boat is Aluminum

I had a few leaks on my aluminum boat......I used a aluminum mix and apply and let dry stuff and it didn't last so I bought some JB Weld steel....sanded the areas again and that stuff is not coming off.....a great cheap fix.

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat

    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
