It is a plumbing test plug.
Cannot find if you do not look!

These test plugs are very similar to the frost plugs used in water cooled engines. Also used in the plumbing industry. {cool^sign}  The drain plug on your boat might be of similar size.

Thanks! I can't wait to build one. You can find a wide variety of rubber plugs and seals at Grainger or any similar industrial supply store. They've got some longer ribbed ones that might seal better, but that's just a guess.
