    You can definetely put it on while in the water. Trick would be to remain calm and not drop the plug while putting it on under water.

    Rear plug yes.....doubtful with the center plug tho. BUT my unplanned test have been on Jon Boats lol. I'd assume it would be the same tho.

    Swim underneath and jam a shirt into the hole until you can get back to the ramp under slow tow - if you try to drive back under speed it might dislodge the shirt.

    Wouldnít hurt to have an emergency tapered rubber plug for situations like this in your boat. The. You could swim under and jam that in and allow the bulge pump to do its thing.

    Not necessarily for your own boat but also if you came across a person in this type of situation.

    Newer moomba and Supras have two drain plugs, one t handle in the center of hull and one square end plug in rear above wake plate.

    The center one is easy access and you could easily plug it.

    The rear one, you can swim under platform and install it with one deep breath.

    I used to put the plug on the driver's seat. If you launch and sit on something uncomfortable you have a problem.

    I rarely take mine out, but when I do it goes in a bag that is tied to the steering wheel - can't miss it there!!

    I leave the floor cover and T handle next to captains seat as typically I am trying to get airflow through the bilge to dry it.

    Canít miss it.
