Special tool for the stern drain plug?

Hi all - we have a 2018 XT21 and every time I remove the aft drain plug I use a large washer and a crescent wrench - it there a special MC tool for this? Thank you.

Why are you pulling the stern plug? I’ve never used any other one than the center plug that can be removed by hand.

Are you aware there is a round door on the center? open and down below is the plastic drain plug to remove any water.

Yep - aware of the center plug as well. Just habit as I used to pull both on our previous boat - especially when garaged during the off season. Thanks for the note back.

Try this key

This is what I use - depending on temperature changes it can be pretty tight.

Your boat is newer and might have different spacing or a different shape but this worked on mine. I think it comes in different widths if yours is different.

Cheers, Steve.
