Default Thoughts on replacing splash well drain tubes

I have (4) 1 1/4” x 3 1/8 I have to replace. Already got the old ones out. I was going to put brass back in. I would have to buy the flaring tool. I ran across these searching the Internet. Anybody have an opinion on them ?

I’ve used them but if your current tube is low in the well to get the water out you will have to grind off the lip on these. Then you have to seal that area.

they held up fine but won’t last as long as the brass ones

There was a Whaler guy that was using a fiberglass version that was bonded in. Sorry I can't be more help

I thought about just using a resin to seal them up. They have rubber flappers on the outside. I just don’t want water getting in the transom. The ones I took out seemed to have 5200 around them .

When I did mine, the marine supply store where I bought them had a loaner flair kit. Might want to ask.

I used the TH Marine drain tubes as a replacement for the brass transom drain tubes in a 1988 Boston Whaler 27' Center Console Cuddy. They worked out very well.

Why reinvent the wheel? The brass drain tubes are so easy to install in transoms, and the tool cost next to nothing. Do not be afraid.
