Any ideas where I can get replacement or what would be alternative. Thanks
Looks right. I found a stainless plug with a large Hex/Allen head. It fit well, but was raised above the deck—a hazard.I remember replacing the brass plug with a s/s bolt from Ace. I think it was a 5 threads per inch, 3/8" (?) about !/2" long. I filed down the nut edges to make it smooth.
I tried to buy one from Sunfish Direct, dating my boat carefully from its serial number. SD sent me the wrong plug, and their customer service ignored me, so I'd be wary of relying on them to sell you a replacement. As others have noted, corks work, although can get kicked loose when coming about.Any ideas where I can get replacement or what would be alternative. Thanks
I think we're talking about the drain off to the side of the splashguard. (No access from cockpit).Not hard to replace with new style. I seem to recall two issues to pay attention to:
1) the old may be very hard to unscrew, so you may end up cutting it off with hacksaw. Even if you don’t have to cut off, you may need two people, one up dealing with nut in cockpit , and other below hull with pipe wrench or pliers.
2) I could be wrong, but I think there are two different thread lengths on the new style, and you might check your thru-hull thickness before picking up the new. Others can weigh in on this, as it’s been a few years since I replaced an old with new. The new is a piece of cake to install.
