New Drain Plugs

I need to install some new drain plugs and considering these. Anyone have any bad experience with them or reason not to use them?

I like the retention of the plug.

I have seen the same in plastic but assumed the stainless may be more durable. Stainless are about $4 more but seems like a good value.

My blazer bay came with a drain plug like this. I like it so far. Haven't noticed any issues with it not being water tight and I don't a wrench to tighten/loosen every use like my old square end plug on my previous boat. Also like the fact that I don't have to worry about my plug going missing as it stays attached.

Stainless or nylon are great.
The nylons in my boat are 12 years old....no issues.

I use the inexpensive nylon ones for my kayaks, and the stoppers tend to go missing.

Stick with the SST. Or stock up on spare plugs.

I have similar on my boat that uses o-rings instead of the gasket type material shown in the picture. Have had the o-rings crack and leak so I keep spares and check every trip.

My bluewave has the same type of plug, but with an oring. No issues, but it’s only 2 years old. As others have said, I never have to worry about where my plug is. Easy to fully remove to inspect the oring, I just looked at mine today actually.
