    You want to order 3/4 threw hull fittings.

    To get to the 3 rear ones when you open your rear V storage doors, theres a carpeted backing attached to the what would be the rear seat. Remove the 2 screws and that panel comes off and tou can reach the back fittings.

    There is a large bolt that holds the the hull fitting onto the boat. My new ones didnt come with O rings. I got 4 O rings at the local Ace hardware. Make sure they are pretty thick as this is going to be touching the gell coat and you dont want your stainless on your gell coat.

    The front one is a bit harder to get to, craw under the drivers dash and you will see the hose connection to the threw hull fitting.

    I did all 4 of mine in about 45 minutes.

    Yep, mmandley said it well. I'd add that the front one can be interesting to get to. I wrapped a pair of needlenose pliers in duct tape and had a helper use that to keep the fitting in place from outside the boat while I tightened the nut on the inside.

    Also I didn't add an o-ring to mine. I view them as permanent fixtures so am not concerned with the gel underneath.

    Good luck, it's a great upgrade!

    The seller is halfpricemarine. They sell in sets of 3, but I emailed and they added 1 to the invoice for just a few bucks more. Here's a link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Set-3...r#ht_729wt_939

    Default Ballast pumps

    Here's a sneak peak at my ballast project. This setup x2 will give me a dedicated pump for each fat sac. Using 1" fill lines all around with one-way valves for the rear sacs and 1" vented loops for the front sacs. The factory 3/4" fill hoses will be cut and used for venting each bag.
