    I have added the 4th threw hull for draining my 1K IBS system. I also have drilled a new hole in the bottom of the hull to add my depth water temp gauge. I also drilled a large hole in the nose of my boat to add a flip over Nav light.

    No spider cracks, no chips and everything looks flush.

    My biggest concern is voiding the warranty, not drilling the holes. I have had many boats in the past and...well I did some funky things but they were not as expensive as this 2011 bute I would hate to put a fitting in and a spider crack happen or some other flukey thing...

    Mike you let me know and ill come see you in Eugene buddy, not a problem.

    As for drilling holes in a boat and voiding warranty, i don't think that will happen, they may just not warranty spider cracks near the spot to drilled. AWS has seen all the options and work i have done on the boat and they have never hinted i would lose my warranty. Even though i run non factory ballast SC and AWS replaced my entire swim deck. Now i have 2 of them.

    THe new 2011 swim deck is different from the 08 its much thicker around the edged. Almost mimics the upgrade Todd < Outback 11 did to his. Ill snap some pictures once i unwrap it. The bad thing is they sent me a grey platform cover with it and they doesn't match anything in my boat. So i have to order a Sea Deck pad again =/

    I spoke w SC a little while ago about drilling holes.
    1 If a dealer drills them you have FULL waranty.
    2 If you drill them they will warany everything unless the holes you drilled caused the problem.

    That is basically what mmandley said.

    Now I can go drill some holes!!!
    REALLY????

    Change of plans , my dealer has agreed to drill the holes for the thru hull fittings. I will be installing a switched 4th pump.

    Now no warranty issues....

    Stang here is how my IBS system is put in.

    It fills off the ski locker pump, when the 400 is full it draines into the 650 IBS bag, this is via the outlet at the top of my 400.

    I then have 2 drain pumps on my IBS. 1 at each corner.
    I have a vent line at the top center of my IBS bag.
    Both pumps and the vent all tie into 1 line at the drivers side and go to a 4th threw hull fitting.

    This stops air from being in my system, it drains the 1K nose bags faster then i can drain a 750. I have the drain pumps looped together and they all run off the factory drain switch. No additional switches needed. Since these are 800 Tsunami pumps there is no worry running them dry.

    Inside the ski locker i drilled into the left side of the nose section right by a brace. I drilled from the nose side into the ski locker after measuring.




    This is the drivers side and shows the drain pump, i just remove the inerds of the pump when i removed the bag so i don't have to disconnect it

    electrically.

    Pic looking up into the dash, you can see the factory threw hull line < clear > with a 1 way check valve and then the added line is going to another threw hull.
