You used to be able to buy a special blanking off kit from Avon in the early 1990's.
We made our own which basically consisted of a shaped bar that fitted in the front holes that was threaded each end. Into which we put bolts in with rubber and metal washers to make it water tight.
So they did up against one another.
In the stern we had a stainless plate with a normal drain bung fitted, this had a stainless bolt through it, which screwed into a threaded hole in a stainless bar behind, which went inside and was wider than the hole, so it just pinched the plate against the stern.

I dont know how clear that is but it can be done!!

boat is in having work done on tubes. currently making two aluminium fuel cans that will strap in between consoles for cruises - 40lites each. currently sorting two sets of trailer parts - new wheels and brake drums for on road, and making the backplates removable. had old wheels blasted and now gone for galvanising which will then be fitted to old drums for launching (boat stays on caravan site all season). need to repaint and sticker outboard - already welded the skeg. then give everything a good clean and polish.

I've thought long and hard about modifications or alterations on mine. Just can't think of any! So a bit boring really!

I guess at a push I will replace the rusty steel brake cable on the trailer with a stainless one. I might look at servicing the Hubs and brakes this year, but then I've said that for the last 6 years and haven't needed to.

Boat cover needs replacing, so I might be making something here!
