Just to clarify - When people say "pull the cleanout plugs", does that mean completely removing the plug from the tube and placing it on the rear deck or is it OK to twist and pull the plug up and leave it in the tube?

Pull completely out of the tube. I lay them over the holes and have the plugs on their sides.

Funny thing was I did think it would actually fit there and I'd be able to close the cover. Worked like a charm.

Thanks,

somehow we allowed you to slip through and even with 400+ posts, our apologies,

your symptoms do sound like the cleanout plug was seated/working properly,

normally when people don't remove their plugs they end up with all the minerals/crap in the water evaporating time again turning into concrete around the seal and freezing the plugs in place.

I left my boat in the water once for 4 days and the plugs swelled and were difficult to get out,

check out Jeff's product in his signature, it's a cheap, easy and effective insurance to make sure your plugs are installed properly and won't blow out under pressure.
