Seeking recommendations on how to best plug an unused 1/2 inch thru hull. It does already have a 1/2 inch male hose fitting. I'm thinking my best option is a short peice of hose and plug the other end with something?

The former owner of my boat jamed a wood plug into the thur hole and then filled it with 5200. Well he had 5200 everywhere, took over 4 hours to remove.

Aye, glass over, fair, match color, polish ... never know it was there!

Next season ... new toy, maybe a/c, genset, sumthin' 'spensive ... oh heck, need water to cool this thing ... guess I'll get 'er hauled and put in a thruhull.

Well, why should Bob be the only one this stuff happens to! :)

Hell - I've got 12 of those underwater. What difference can one more or one less make?

I would double clamp a hose onto it, long enough to loop above the waterline and clamp a wooden plug to the end. Keep the valve shut until you find a new use for it.

It depends...if you're positive you're not going to need it for anything... glass it over... if you have future plans that may require a through-hull... do what TB said.
