drains

I believe j.d.a was the oringale mfg. In so ca. I've used them since the 70's. I've always backed them up with a plug if i left the boat in the water overnite, any lil piece will hold them open. My 2 cents. Andy p.s. Give rex a call

JDA stood for the original owner, John David Annin, if I'm not mistaken.

You are correct Mike. He sold the business about 4 years ago. He raced unblown fuel flats back in the day. Whisker Biscuit was the name of his boats.

Garbage!
I just threw 6 of those away. No joke.
I would never trust a little rubber flap to keep my investment above water. Unless of course you have a boat that sits on the trailer all day. But then if that's the case why have anything at all?

Those are called "boat sinkers"
I've got several spares you can have for free.

I've always heard them called scuppers. Maybe they are only called scuppers when they are placed above the waterline like on a fishing boat.
