I'm using a 130mm diameter, 3mm thick 316 grade stainless disc, drilled 25mm for a drain plug, with a 316 grade 3mm thick flat bar, 130 x 75 inside the hull, horizontally across the inside of the hole with 12mm thick, 100mm diameter plastic spacers in between the two bits of stainless. These will locate the whole job in the drain hole. The two M5 bolts for the drain plug will pass through the outer disc and plastic spacers, then fix into the lower part of the flat bar and another couple of M6 bolts through the upper part of the disc will give a good solid fix.
Oh and some sikaflex type stuff to make sure nothing falls into the sea.
Photos later

Oh and I found some really neat plugs for the vent holes in the bow. These are meant to plug the end of a 1" round pipe, eg leg of a chair.

Here we go.
Well, I saw this piece of A4 size Acrylic for a couple of quid and it looked a bit similar to Searider Orange, so I thought I'd give it a go. The colour wasn't quite right, so I decided to use a piece of 316 instead.
1st pic is of the discs I cut out of the orange acrylic, with the drain plug in place.
2nd pic is of the flat brace bar for inside the void, the orange acrylic pieces used as a spacer, the 316 disc for the outside and a toob of sticky goo. I also used 2 no M5 x 35 csk bolts for the drain plug, 2 no M6 x 35 button head bolts, flat washers and rubber sealing washers for fixing the 316 disc and a M6 x 20 csk bolt for fixing the plastic spacers to the brace bar.
3rd pic is of the orange acrylic spacers and brace bar in place.
4th pic is of the finished job.
