through-hull drains

I'm thinking about installing a hull drain in my Bo-Jest build.since the lowest point is up in the v-berth area-it would have to be a through hull fitting with a plug.I'm thinking on a bronze fitting and screw in bronze plug(if I can find such a critter)It would be open only while on trailer to drai...
