The Seabung is a cool inventive little gadget is a great addition or replacement for wooden bungs, and enables boatowners to service and maintain a thru hull without having to get the boat out of the water, thus saving time and money. The makers of Seabung were surprised that despite technological advancements, over hundreds of years, we still hammer wooden pieces to plug breaches in a boats hull. They therefore decided to use hi-tech materials and revolutionary design to come up with a better and simpler way to deal with seacock replacements.
Essentially, the Seabung is a pair of flexible rubber pads attached to bendy sticks which can be used to plug holes ranging from 19mm to 63mm. The Seabung can be plugged through holes of any shape, including through a seacock. The hydrostatic pressure of the surrounding water will then deploy the Seabung and hold it in place.
Seabung allows you to carry out regular checks of your boat’s underwater fittings without having to drag the boat out of the water.
