Push come to shove, worst case scenario, I've used a cork out of a wine bottle, whittled it down a bit and twisted it in. It worked for an entire weekend of racing. :D

I've never found a plug to fit other than the ones from Hobie. A cork will work push come to shove.

I had to use a cork a few weekends ago, it actually worked better than the plug I lost. Biggest problem was I had to destroy it to get it out.

Do you have any Patron Tequila??? I have read somewhere that the cord from one of those bottles is the perfect size for the drain plug.... Plus the end of the cork is big and won't go all the way through the drain plug hole like a wine bottle cork would.

How do you like that bit of knowledge??? I'd actually like to know if it works...
