    Not sure if this is directed to me, i dont recall the exact size. I went to ACE Hardware with the fitting in my hand and test fit them till it fit. I know its a fat black O Ring so it can be squished a bit and still not allow the O Ring to touch. I actually have another threw Hull fitting and i will stop in Monday to get the O Ring and get back with ya.

    Yeh Mike, that was for you. I'll just do the same. ACE isn't too far from my place, so I'll swing by this weekend with a fitting and see what I can find. Thanks!

    Default 1" Thru hull fittings

    Got the new thru hulls installed. Not much to see, but thought I'd show the location.

    Default Ballast Vents

    I added vents to each bag and tied them into the drain lines. You can see the check valve and wye fitting in this pic. This is hidden by the carpeted panels in the lockers and out of sight up above the drivers footwell. I reused the factory 3/4" fill lines so it was fairly inexpensive.

    Im a bit confused, this looks like the V drive area? Did you put new threw hulls for intakes to the pumps your running?

    Yep, the thru hulls are in the bilge area and are for the pumps I'm adding. I started fresh with 1" thru hulls rather than reusing the factory grated intake since that was only 3/4". You can see the layout of the pumps in one of the pics above. 2 tsunami 1200 pumps on each 1" thru hull.

    Thanks! I haven't really done anything major, just little stuff to make the boat work better for me.

    Hey Brain_Rinse!
    Are those 3/4"? I'm looking at buying the 3 pack from the same ebay retailer and don't have my boat here handy to check? I'm sure they are? And do the lenghts vary?
    Thanks!
    All mods look good!
