JB Airboats Thread-In Transom Plugs

Postby krazymatt » Tue Jan 16, 2018 6:59 am

Does anyone know the brand of these pieces of shit or where to get replacements for them? The flat rubber seal on mine has seen better days. I also wouldn't mind having a few spares...

Will a rubber O-ring work?

Not sure what they use but what about a One way flapper plug. we used to use them in our race boats.
Sometimes referred to as a duck-bill plug. Moeller 61550

Just a thought.

Its not round, it's a flat seal / square o ring. Almost looks like a seal that comes on a garden hose.

Yes there are a bunch online I just don't know if they are interchangeable. Looking for direct replacement and prefer somewhere locally to cocoa area to get some. Attwood, sea dog, and sea choice marine all make similar ones as well...

Looks like the Seadog is your direct replacement to me
