    not bad at all. You need a flat head, philips head, channel lock pliers and about 1 hr.
    I found on my LSV that in the rear compartments, there is a small carpeted board at the top/front of the compartment that has 2 philips head screws in it. take it off first and you can get to the hoses easier.
    Take the hose clamp off first, then take the nut off the back of the old thru hull fitting. Remove. Reverse. Literally 30 minutes for all 4.
    The front one was a little harder as it is between the front storage compartment and the drivers console area. I found it easier to crawl backwards into the front underseat storage. take all tools with you so you don't have to crawl back out.. this one would be easier if you had a helper outside to put the new one back in..

    I was very pleased with how they turned out. $20 for these 4. Stainless cost about $25 each. Would be nice to have stainless, but was not up for $100 on this project.

    I already ordered mine from Overtons. I should get them next week. I am jealous of the pictures of the boats outside. It's still too cold to hit the lake in Las Vegas.

    Aquaholic-- I like your rims on the trailer. Where did you get them? If possible, can I get the name of the rim. I like to change mine out.

    Hey Aquaholic,
    How hard was it to install new thru-hulls on your XLV? I have the same boat and access to the inside of the thru-hulls appears to be a bit different from the LSV's. Did you completely remove the rear access panel before installing? Mine seems to be attached down at the floor level somehow and I cannot find any exposed fasteners. There are (2) screws at the top which come out easily but it is definately still attached to the floor.

    The boat he has posted is a Tige not an XLV.

    I would start a new thread about Thul Hull install in an XLV I'm sure many other XLV owners can help you out.
