    Default Thru-hull mod for ballast

    So, has anyone installed a 4th thru hull intake and overflow for an additional ballast sac? Has any issues occured - spider cracks etc...?

    I am just try to determine if I want to risk the warranty being VOID on my new 2011. I can't see any issues as there are already 3 intakes with the GIII system. Any thoughts???

    Why wouldn't you just add a T fitting to one of the pumps?

    Stupid editing thing..... Timed out before I could make changes. I meant a T-fitting to the intake and then add the 4th pump. That way you don't wreck your warranty.

    I don't think you really need the timing modules.

    I was just inquiring, I did discuss it with my dealer as well as WakeMakers and I'm thinking about T'ing into the same line as the centre 400lb sac. Just wanted to get others opinions Spencer from WakeMakers thought that T'ing an addition into the existing would be the best solution instead of drilling new thru hull finttings. I'm going to stick with the PLAN of NOT drilling holes

    I am Ed, just got off the phone and my items have been ordered, NO thru hull fittings and NO 1100lb sac's I think this is the right/smart decision as well!

    ATM, no 4th pump or module, I will be sharing the same pump as the centre locker 400lb sac. Spencer will be shipping a plumbing diagram as well. I will post it when I receive it...

    This is what I was responding to. That extra 18 inches in length and 1" in width translates to a lot more additional storage room for the placement of things like pumps etc which Ed was questioning if he had room for.

    From all of the pictures I have seen on this site of the LSV, it appears to have a lot more room in behind the observers seat and in the rear lockers as well as the V-Drive compartment than the OBV. Both new and older generations.

    So, that is what I was refering to. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

    So, you wanna meet after school behind the Monkey Bars and settle this or what?

    Sheesh!

    Is it me or does it always seen when an Outback owner is told there boat is smaller then an LSV it's like calling them out but when an XLV owner says an LSV is smaller we just nod our head in agreement?
