Yes you need to also buy the thru hull. It threads into the sea **** but you don't need the nut if using with a real sea ****. Depending on your hull thickness you may need to cut the through hull a bit shorter, with a hack saw, or it will bottom out in the sea **** before it's tight. Apply 4200 to the threads after the sea **** has been mounted and beded. Then thread in the through hull from the out side using a liberal amount of 4200 around the mushroom head. It's imperative that you do a dry fit to m ake sure all lines up and fits well before applying 4200... I buy all mine from Hamilton Marine. My new boat is actually on the hard and I'm doing this exact upgrade as we discuss it here. So far I have about $450.00 tied up just in bronze......
