True... and as long as they're a decent stainless and not pot metal they are probably OK - the issue was usually lack of a good hose barb or a long enough spud to firmly attach a hose.

On the flip side, if you saved the basket/stoppers you could turn the cockpit into a bathtub for toddlers on a hot day!
