....drain plugs....

......try a wine cork until you can find the real deal....i always carry two of 'em in my manpurse(drybag)......after 2 years of carrying the cork i finally gave it to one of my crew in the MONTROSE LOWERS.....he'd lost his during the portage....no tape needed.....milozadik wishecouldski 420 CB

peice of wood as in a stick or dowell wrapp a little foam and duct tape around it and screw into place it should screw and stay great the foam seals and the duct tape grips. my method at least. or duct tape over the hole.

I agree with mike that they are less leaky without, and love not having one in my jackson. But they do make kits for it:
