  2. Some of you many have already seen the thread, others may not have, but in short, one of our members (Speedling) recently had a stroke at age 34. Medical bills not withstanding, Lee is self employed in the construction business. So needless to say, there is going to be a period here where Lee won't be able to provide for his family and needs to focus on rehab. Of course, like all of us, he'll be stressing big time about this-at a time when stress is the last thing he needs. So lets all pull together like his extended family and help him out! Donate what ever you can today....he's not one to ask (most of us aren't)....so put yourself in his shoes and LET'S DO SOME GOOD!

How to replace a broken (or waiting to break) plastic scupper

Many of our boats have plastic scuppers (this is the part that the drain hose from your cockpit is connected to on the outside of the boat) that crack and can leak large amounts of water into the boat. Here are some threads on how to replace the plastic scupper with a Stainless one:

  1. Scuppers--How to install new SS Scupper
  2. A Thread with more photos and part #'s
  3. A thread on borrowing pre-made scupper wrenches to fit in the small gap in the bilge.
  4. Another thread on how to do it.
  5. A discussion on if this needs to be done on models where the scupper is higher (240 series, new 210s 190s etc)
