Anyone have any great solutions for simply plugging the hole between the locker and the engine? I've tried those rubber plugs but they don't seem to hold. I also have a bunch of engine oil residue on the sides of the locker that I would love to get out. I've cleaned it with dish soap but it hasn't been 100% successful. Any suggestions?

To clean - totally awesome cleaner... mine is squeaky clean. My plug works - but I need to reseal sides. Right now I jack up front of trailer - let water drain - then throw in a rolled up towel to absorb residual water... then I leave towel in make a rolled up towel damn in bilge drop trailer tongue down... for rest of water to drain thru drain...

I keep my boat in my garage so I am able to get it bone dry during non use.

Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a shot. I don't trailer it all the time so I'm fighting a losing battle, but to get it cleaned out would add some peace of mind... Then again, I don't open it much so it is also out of sight, out of mind.
