Rear bung

Post by Compo1804 » 06 Nov 2018, 21:50

Hi peeps,
Just a quick question.
Does the rear bung get fitted from the inside or outside.
It was supplied fitted inside and nylon string also tied on already.
Seems safer to me from the outside or is there something I’m missing

Thanks guys

Mal

There are 2 basic types. Expanding with a lever type handle that rotates 90 degrees to expand the bung. These go inside.

A push in type that generally go outside... Moe used on low power tender type sibs. No real reason they go outside that I can think of!

Which have you got....

I have the honwave 3.8m sib and just the push in one which was fitted inside when it came in the box. Not been out yet though.

The bung fits inside, fitting it outside will stop its functionality.
Take a look at the valve on the outer side of the transom, you’ll see a thin piece of rubber somewhat blocking the hole, that acts as a one way valve.
The idea being - water can’t enter through the valve when stationary (bung in place) but when under power you pull the bung out to drain away any water that’s made it’s way in the boat.
It’s far from a perfect system but it is better than nothing.
Putting the bung on the outside of the transom will make it in-useable at sea.
