Just looking for tips and advice from anyone who has done this conversion before ... or any advice in drilling a thru-hull. Never did that before either.
- I'm planning to glass in a piece of 1/2" plywood to reinforce the area. I was going to use regular construction plywood. Someone stop me ...
- Is this transparent water hose good enough? I was going to use 1 1/4" wet exhaust hose but that stuff is ridiculously expensive and probably way overkill
- Mercruiser flush kit: $160, plastic T valve: $9 ... why do I need to spend $160 on a Merc garden hose / flush kit? Its made of plastic too.
