I found where you can buy them online across the pond

Transom Sock HEN002063 - Henshaw Inflatables Ltd

does anyone in the US sell them?

What is the best way to cap off the transom drain tubes?

We would call it an elephant trunk. Commonly found in grey hypalon hence the name rather than the rigidity.

Its just a tube if hypalon or PVC. In diameters vary depending on the transom hole.

You get layflay tube for water pumps etc that is the same approach - depends if the diameter is right...

What are you trying to cap? The bit of string lifts the floppy end and once its above the waterline the trunk is closed...

I wanted to cap the transom hole from the inside of the deck just as an extra safety measure so no water gets in while the boat is on a mooring

It might be safer to leave the boat in the self-bailing mode, rain can fill up a boat fairly easily if the boat can't shed the water through the scuppers...

Normally no need just tie the trunk and its fine.

If you still want to then I guess depends on the size and design of the outlet - may be something from the industrial plumbing world...
