Garboard Drain Plug Question

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

When installing a garboard plug with a tapered fitting, how tight should it be screwed in? Do you use gease on the plug, teflon tape or nothing at all. I'll be keeping the boat in for the season and I'm trying to avoid problems with leaks. Thanks in advance

I'm no expert, but it looks like a regular pipe (tapered) plug to me, in which case you'd want to snug it up with a wrench. No grease, but I'd use teflon tape to keep it from seizing up, and maybe plumbers dope. You might want to ask someone in a boatyard though just to make sure.
