    Great. Thank you! The tube just barely fits in the drain hole so there's not much of a 'gap'.

    Yes and make sure that once you have the tube in place that you pack more thickened epoxy into the gap from both sides. You want to get the space between the hull and the PVC as full of thickened epoxy as you can. You should also sand the outside of the PVC pipe with rough sandpaper before you start so that the epoxy has a good rough surface to bond to.

    Thickened epoxy refers to putting something in the epoxy to thicken it into a paste. There are a few things commonly used for this, Cabosil, Cotton Fiber, 3M Bubbles, etc to name a few.
    A bunch of them are listed in the westsystem link above with descriptions on what they work well for.

    Check out this website https://www.westsystem.com/wp-conten...anual-2016.pdf
    There is a lot of information about their epoxies.

    Would marine Tex work? Or would I need something more specialized?

    EDIT- Thickened epoxy is the name of the epoxy. Got it. I'm not familair with all the different epoxies and goo's out there. But if I ever finish this project I'm sure I will be. Looks like this thickened epoxy only comes in a full size caulk tube. I think I need about 1/4 of that at most.

    I replaced my brass sleeves with PVC also. I didn’t use 4200 I used thickened epoxy.

    So just cut a piece of pvc (or stainless) to the exact thickness of the transom, slather it in 4200, and shove it in?

    I used thickened epoxy to bed a piece of PVC pipe for my drain plug hole.

    Someone in THT mentioned getting this-

    and flaring each side of it once I cut it to size. I don't see ANY moeller flanging tool for 1.5" pipe though. It's always 1", 1-1/4", or 1-7/8".

    Are you looking for the part that covers the hole or are you looking to sleeve the hole through the transom?
    The sleeve that runs through the transom.
    originally I was thinking i could use a thru-hull for them but can't find one that will for the current hole.

    Last time I replaced scupper tubes, I epoxied thin wall PVC pipe in their place...

    Looks like you could enlarge, just don’t go lower.
