The plunger is a good idea but you don''t need a water hose. If the hull is smooth, grease it up with some vasaline close the valve and stuff the plunger over it. If it falls off it leaks. After all, if it will leak air, it''ll leak water.

Get a plunger that you can screw a garden hose into where the handle goes. Cut the rubber so the hole goes through and hold it against the boat with the water on.

How many thru hull fittings does the boat have? Wood, glass or steel hull?

I wonder if you could rig a steel bucket with a hose fitting in the bottom of the bucket, force the bucket against the hull using some sort of rubber gasket as a seal and turn the water pressure on and look for leaks from the inside??

Is there any way to check thru hull fittings to insure they do not leak prior to launching your boat for the season?

Had two one year and had to haul the boat out to rebed them.
