They use them on the RNLI outboards on the exhaust, we call them fishtails.

found the modern equivalent, for all future knowledge. Tempo Marine Products bought thru Chandleryworld, see below

Automatic Drain Plugs

• Unique "flapper" that automatically drains water when the boat is under way • Provides a water tight seal when the boat slows or stops • Flexible neoprene plug inserts in the transom drain hole • Fits all standard 1" diameter drains on transoms up to 2-1/4" thick


cheers

Don't leave a boat afloat without a bung with those things, a tiny piece of debris will allow water to come in slowly - use a bung!
