If nothing else works easily, why not buy a 1 inch hole saw and make it standard? Or take it by Clackacraft and have them bore you a new 1 inch hole. I bet they'd do that for nothing.

I got some odd size boat plugs at Hi-School pharmacy in Independence a while back. I can check and see if they have that size. You may want to email me to remind me. MM

Good idea, Silver Hilton, but don't try to use a Hole saw. A hole saw either needs a guide bit or a drill press to hold it. If you have a Forstner bit and a slow drill, you might try that, but it might be a wrist snapper. A tapered Uni-bit with a maximum diameter of 1" would get you there the safest.

I was wondering cause the 1" doesn't fit (Too Bog) and the half is too small, but I don't think I have ever seen a 3/4. Its for my Clackacraft DB inside the boat plug.

My old Alumadrifter had 3/4" plugs in it. Try Fishermans Marine and Outdoors or Stevens Marine.

I had one of those emergencies once where the only store open was GI Joes. As usual, they didn't have what I needed so I bought some 1/2" plugs and a roll of electrical tape and built
the 1/2 inchers up with the electrical tape. I think I ended up using those same plugs for about a year and 1/2 before I finally decided to replace them with the proper ones. Worked Fine.

If nothing else call Clackacraft. If they drilled the hole, they should have the plug.

As a last resort, you could always try a wine bottle cork. :grin:

I'd ask Clackacraft, but it sounds like a baitwell plug.

I had the same predicament. HAve you tried turning the lever deal clockwise to widen out the plug. Thats what i did and it fit snug.

I got a 15/16" at the local alumaweld dealer in bend, try a marine dealer, it was a little small but by turning the top clockwise I got it to fit just fine. Mike
