    Default 1" better be worth it...

    I'm only a few hours into install and I gotta say, 1" is a pain in the ass to work with! Especially if you're working in really tight quarters which most of us are. The improved flow over 3/4" sure as hell better be worth it because I don't have a single knuckle that isn't ripped open and have scrapes and bruises to both elbows.

    The 1" vented loops are HUGE compared to the 3/4" variety. Had to change up my plans a little because I can't find a good place for them to all fit and be at least party hidden. Everything is just bigger and makes for a tighter fit everywhere.

    The 1" premium ballast hose is so stiff I'm fighting with it to get it over most of the fittings (hence half the busted knuckles). To much heat gun just melts it or deforms it. A little lube helps but still a battle.

    Slow progress... I can see I will be fighting this install every step of the way.

    Good to know. Tape knuckles.

    I too have a box of ballast waiting for me: 1" T, johnson ultra reverse pump, 1" lines, 1" throughhull for my vent line (not doing vented loops). I'm scared about drilling a hole in my boat. Gonna measure a dozen times and hey it's only the side of the boat, couldn't bring myself to add another to the bottom.

    Now to find the time to have the boat ripped apart for a few days....

    Yeah, just keep reminding me that until it's done...

    The other catch is finding time to do it! I had to play hookey from work yesterday to get started with plumbing and mounting. Four trips to Lowes to get a few overlooked fittings and the right hole saws and I still don't have the right one dammit. I don't know how the other guys out there are getting all these radical ballast and stereo mods done. Seems like there's always something with kids or activities competing for time or it's freakin pouring down rain and I don't feel like turning the side yard between the boat and the garage into a mud bath.

    I hear ya Berg, i dont have the kid distractions but i got plenty of others and then it starts raining and i just dont feel like going out and doing anything LOL.

    As for the tools to do the job sometimes you gotta make what ya got work lol.

    Doing mods always takes me 2x to 3x as long as i expect and i have yet to spend a day working on the boat and not be sore someplace the next day. Eighter arms, elbos, knees, back, hands LOL
