I bought those two years ago, they work great, I only use them in the seating area.  The biggest problem is that as water gets splashed in the kayak or it rains, you end up sitting in a (usually very small) puddle.  They stay in 100% of the time.  I don't really use them in the rear tankwell.

they are 34mm wide (that is with the gasket around them). that way you can all see if they would fit your ride.

We could try to do a order and do a "test" evening somewhere around ottawa. I have them shipped to my job in the US so i save a lot on shipping.

I need 1 more for the foot area anyway :->

The yellow plugs from OK fit my Riot...if these fit that would be great for when the water gets cold...it's a wet boat!
I saw the valved model at Sail...

they only work on the ocean boats ::)

Will they work on Hobie kayaks? I am thinking of getting them for my Revo.

Hello fellow anglers, I was looking at these for a while now and I made the jump last week.

http://www.austinkayak.com/products/6647/Scupper-Valve-Each.html

Ordered 4 for my trident prowler to keep the sitting area and the tankwell dry.

I have to say, they really works ! it was my second outing tonight on the madawaska and everything stayed dry. I even splashed water in the tankwell and it drained as advertised.

I recommend them if you want a dryer ride.
