Spoiler

It’s a plug for a hole on a boat. Recommended to be stored in plain site, one for every ten feet of boat length, these foam cones are designed to morph to the size of the hole and prevent or slow water from coming in. They fit perfectly if the problem is a pipe, and can be cut for more irregular sized holes.

  1. The boat is GOING DOWN, and you put this in a hole? or in the toilet so water doesn’t come up? this is a bigger size version of the butt plug I just saw on another video that morticians use to prevent leakage after death. So to me it said “Stopping water”
