I want to put scupper valves in my TI seat scupper holes. But every retail site I have searched only lists valves as being small/medium/or large. What 'industry' size is the TI seat scupper holes? Two medium valves run about $20...I don't want to waste my money buying the wrong size.

The Medium Ocean brand valves are too large for the Hobie sized scuppers.

Thanks...that is the answer I was looking for...I will order a pair of 'small' valves'...and report back if they fit.

UPDATE...the only kayak valves available are the patented Ocean Kayak valves, and they are only made in a medium size which is too large for Hobie Scuppers.

I guess I will have to wait until a member starts making a valve that fits our Hobies. It happened with splash-spray skirts...maybe now for valves.

I could very well be mistaken, but I don't think the offer the valves in any size other than "medium." The others are just plugs.
