additionally, be aware the driving a wood DC plug into an FG hull penetration may not be the best bet. Might function as a wood spitting wedge and exacerbate the problem.

As psneeld has said, better to learn the basics of damage control and find the suporting materials before the event happens. Therein is the problem. Does anybody offer a course or seminar in basic DC for plastic boats?

I like that idea woth plywood as long as the screw gun does not get soaked or still works if it does get wet.
