I popped one out and figured it out. Of course, it is now a bit loose. Do they sell replacement plugs that are rubber? Seems rubber would be a tight seal and still easy to remove and install.
BTW Chief, when did you serve? My father-in-law did 30 years, mostly on subs. He was a Master Chief as well. I think he officially retired in '86 but then spent almost 20 years teaching at Great Lakes.
