I second the wax ring idea. I think it is like the stuff in a jar they had in the video, just a lot cheaper. We have had one on board for many years and never used it - hope that continues. I think also that for leaks it does not have to be one method or another - you can combine a wooden plug with some of the wax for example with an irregularly shaped hole.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
