  • Drain plugs on pontoons

    On my pontoon boat I have 1/2" plastic plugs at the bottom to drain any water from them. I need to replace them as one is cracked. I know I can't put stainless or galvanized one in there as it will react with the aluminum. Can I put either brass or bronze ones in without creating a problem with the metals reacting?? If not, where can I get some more plastic ones??

    Thanks!!

    Most any hardware store has plastic (pvc) 1/2" plugs
    Put a little pipe joint compound on the threads.
    Do not overtighten
    Happy sailing
