Advice Needed

The threads on by transom drain plug have started to get a bit loose hence im needing to replace the plug and its receptacle both parts, any advice on any sealant or glue needed or is it just a case of unscrew the receptacle and replace.

If the threads are worn you could wrapp several teflon tape rounds on the threaded body of the outter drain plug + apply silicone around top black gasket which seals against transom, screw both parts tight, let dry. If water stills makes it's way inside deck, must change both parts.

Happy Boating
