Work ‘scupper’ into your next party conversation.
Scupper. It’s hard to say it without smiling, or even chuckling a little to yourself. It’s just one of those fun words. But more to the point, scuppers help block the holes in the cockpit of your sit-on-top kayak so your paddling shorts stay a bit dryer in the spring and fall. Grab the Ocean Kayak Scupper Stoppers and extend your season a bit. Check what size your kayak needs, and keep in mind that sometimes your kayak will need more than one size.

What size scupper stoppers would fit my Wilderness x115 sit on top kayak
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These are great plugs and easy to use. The image above is inaccurate however as the color yellow is only for the size small. XS (green), Small (yellow), Medium (blue), and Large (Red).
Fits inside my Field and Stream 'Eagle Talon' Kayaks from Dick's sporting goods. I ordered the medium size.
So far, I have no complaints
Great at plugging.
These scupper plugs seem pretty durable, took a few tries to get the right sizes but they worked out in the end. Awesome fit overall pretty happy with my purchase! The rubber that they used is pretty flexible and seems like it was last a couple years. Better than I expected.

I just bought a Pelican Apex 110 sit on top kayak and I have no clue what size plugs I should get?
Ocean Kayak doesn't offer up the sizes of the plugs, they just tell you which plugs fit each of their boats. I would take a guess as to which size, buy a set of one or two sizes, and see where to go from there. The sweet thing is Backcountry has an awesome return policy. Maybe even buy the total number you need in each size, and return the ones that you don't need when its all said and done, because in my experience the scupper holes are usually not the same size throughout the boat.

Hey Rod, here's the sizing sheet from Ocean Kayak:
Ocean Kayak Scupper Stoppers
I have a Mainstream Twist kayak, not a very common model. I wasn't sure what size stoppers I needed, so I was referred to someone at Ocean Kayak who said that the small (yellow) stoppers would fit. Unfortunately, they seem to be too small, as they protrude beyond the bottoms of the scupper holes and leak when I get in the kayak. I guess I should try the medium (blue) stoppers. I just don't know if it's worth the hassle and expense of exchanging them.
