Make sure your Drain Plug is secure and the rubber gasket is not cracked or dried out. Your Drain Plug's primary use is to assist in keeping your kayak dry. If water should enter your hull, unscrew your drain plug and empty out any liquid. Paddling without a Drain Plug can result in a swamped hull, don't take the chance!
I bought a used Cobra Explorer kayak and it didn't come with a drain plug. I ordered the plug and was a bit weary because I didnt know what the original looked like. This plug fit perfectly! It is made of good material and it keeps the water out.
These plugs fit perfectly in my Cobra Explorer!
It appears to be of even better quality than the original piece that eventually cracked and broke.
the plug was the right thread and kept the water out.
