boat leak where plug goes in

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

Crystal Welding in Osseo/Rogers area could fix that to. Just saying.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
