Transom drains

Need to put a new drain plug on my transom, but entirely sure which is best.

For me I donít particularly like the snap type on the outside (even when snapped upwards) as I just donít trust the fit under power. So my choice is either a screw in or a Garboard plug.

Does anyone have any experience of either😁?

Thanks in advance

I have something like the middle (stainless) one in your images on my Ribtec, no issues at all with it.

Agreed - I have the lever action type on the inside of both my small TomKat RIB and a 14' aluminium dingy, but would definitely only use those from the inside of any boat, don't think they are at all designed for being used external to the hull and underwater!

Iíve had both of the screw types over the years with no problems. The stainless one having the obvious advantage of not requiring tools to take out.
