    REMOTE DRAIN PLUG

    I am trying to install a remote drain plug on my phoenix boat and have ran into an issue that i am sure others have already ran into. The current drain hole is an inch and a 1/4 and the remote drain plug is an inch. what has everybody done to get the remote drain plug to fit?

    I just did it and there is a post from a while back that shows it. All I did was cut the threaded portion off the stock chrome plug, grind down the inside stuff, ground down the remote housing (just a little), drilled new holes in the plastic housing to match the existing bolt holes. Put 4200 on everything and put it in. Here's what I'm learning now so a good warning. If you are using 4200 clean the area with acetone or it may not stick. A spot I did on the rubrail peeled right off like it never stuck so it has me a little worried about the plug. Plus the fact that since the change in taking in a little water but it could be from a livewell fitting also, i just haven't been able to check. This all started with a little leak I can't find and honestly, it's driving me crazy trying to find and fix it. I've fixed a couple but evidentally not the right one lol. The plug works great though

    Threaded bushing if you can the correct thread pitch.
