I bought these on eBay for $5.24 ($2.40 plus $2.84 shipping).Screen Shot 2019-03-23 at 9.23.35 PM.png

Plugged the drain hole and tested by filling it with water.IMG-7915.JPG

I will keep it plugged while using the boat.

Yep. I did this last year when I was finding wet carpet under the rear seats. Stopped the problem completely.

What was the problem? Water getting inside?

Yep, and then it drains in between the hull and anchor locker, filling the bilge. You can fix the separation issue with some 3M 5200, I chose to get a simple plug. Some do both.

so the plug doesn't need the 5200? Does it seal the space between the two layers?

I was at WalMart today and they sold the plugs in the Marine section.

I thought most water comes up through the hull fitting and then fills the anchor while also dripping between the drain area. How are you getting that much water in the anchor locker?

No, it leaks in between the outer and inner hull as the water is coming into the anchor locker drain because of inadequate seal of the drain insert not fully extending and sealing the space between the inner and outer hull. Some white 3M 5200 on the inside is a pretty easy fix for this issue though.

@MidnightRider , I don’t understand how water gets in the locker if a drain plug is put into the top of the drain hole. I understand the issue with the leaking.

Thanks for posting this! Haven't had the wet carpet issue yet, but until the dealer goes through my punch list (which includes this) this fall I might as well throw one of these in the drain just in case!

Happen to have a link to the ones you bought? I'm finding 7533PD1's for close to that cheap, but I only found "Set of 5" on the 7533A7 (model in your pic). Not sure off-hand what the difference is between the PD1's and the A7's, but if you've confirmed the A7's work, barring any other info, I'll go with those..
