Ok, good video, I love the attitude of those guys and how they abuse the crash yacht for the greater good. But I still don't see how basically a plastic thru hull plug that is usually not mounted very well on the hull is acceptable for a boat. I would not mount one and as stated plan to plug the two now installed. With all the debris in the water now there is a lot of stuff to hit and knock out the knot meter. By the way, ordered some of the orange forespare plugs that they showed in the video, mine arrived a couple days ago. Good to see they work, along with the collection of my wood plugs.
