HELP,, I need to add drain plugs to all three of my tin boats, two Aerocraft's and one Feathercraft. None of them had drain plugs in the transom. What do people recommend me do..........can I buy the aluminum tube with the flared end to put into the transom ....or use the "garboard" (surely spelled wrong) drain plug..........??????

Where to buy the aluminum tube deal ??

It looks like you can order it. The problem becomes whether or not you have someone weld it to the boat.

I went to my local boat dealer. The were super cheap, like a buck or two and they even let me me use their install tool which worked awesome. Took about two minutes to install two of them perfectly and they snugged up really well. I'd recommend that route if you have that option.
