Rode Locker Drain

Takin' the advise from this forum, I got me a piece of PVC, turned it down to a force fit, put some sealer on it, and smacked it into my anchor locker discharge. As you can see, the nasty rust stain is virtually gone. The other photo is the "envy" part. What a boat!

Got the same issue with my AC discharge line. What kind of sealer did you use? Is your thru hull plastic?

I have done that same thing on my boat for several years, but have always done it with a clear plastic drain tube. The tubing is cheap from Lowe's or HD, etc., and comes in several sizes.

I find I have to cut it lengthwise and cut some out to make it compress down to make a tight fit into the drain opening. All it takes for length is enough to take the drips out away from the hull.
