    Hello all. I recently bought an older sunfish and have to replace a missing drain plug on the port side deck. The starboard side is a screw and is functional. I have a 3/8" brass plug which will temporarily do the job as but I want to buy a plug that fits properly. Are such parts available? If so, from where? Thanks.

    Funny, today I just bought a plug for my Phantom. Got one at my hardwhere store. You push the plug in then pull down a lever to secure it tight in the hole. I figured I wouldn't be able to find a real Phantom plug. This ones seems like it will do the job. (I used a rubber wine cork on my last trip out -big mistake.)

    All of the replacement Sunfish parts are available at mail order/internet places like Annapolis Performance Sailing or Layline. The replacement plug is plastic (I think it is part no. V13500, Holt Allen Plug, gray, complete $4.00 at APS). Should be pretty easy to install.

    Thank you. The 7 dollar plug fit like a glove.
