    Question Possible to leak water into hull from around drain plug area?

    Just wondering if a tiny leak around the drain plug area could cause slow water take on while riding?

    I tested my bailer tubes by putting couple lb of air into them and noticed bubbling around the drain plugs area at the rear of the ski. Air was escaping through the screwed in plugs, is there supposed to be oring on the threading if so I don't have any, and from behind the fittings themselves where the rubber/foam gasket sits on the hull.

    Thinking of taking them off and putting some Ultra Black to improve the seal.

    This is on RXP

    What make, model and year is the watercraft?

    Most (all?) captive drain plugs I have seen have an o-ring seal. Sometimes when they age the o-rings dry out and crack, so falling off entirely is possible.

    Mission Accomplished

    Had some garden hose gaskets/seals and those fit perfectly around the plug.
