Replacing/Plugging unwanted through hulls

#1

Post by tucker99 » Mon Feb 13, 2017 9:18 am

Eliminating the leaking live well on a Quintrex. Intake and discharge is in the stern live well and shut off in the bow. Eliminating the whole thing and have a 1" & 1/4 hole in the stern. I need a non-metallic fitting and Marelon doesn't seem to make anything I need. Any suggestions?

easiest way is to get a threaded bulkhead fitting like this and then put a threaded plug in it

or search for a dedicated bulkhead plug in the size you need
