Re: Installing tapered scuppers?
That would be a counter-sunk or flush fitted scupper. A hole saw would work for the body of the fitting; but you would need a matching angle counter sink bit for the flange. THat might be a tough bit to find anywhere; except perhaps the mfgr of the fitting or a specialty tool supplier. IF it's a standard angle; you *may* be able. to find a matchin. tapered reamer(of sorts) bu. quite a bit biiger that those used for screws. Used to have one for a brace and bit. set that was near 1.5" dia. and had (at least) 8 "vanes"/cuting edges. BTW... I have never heard ttell of a "tapered hole-saw". Uniiversal gradualted bits; but no saw. The bgrad bits would not be enough angle, anyway..
I'd simply match the angle with hand tools/die grinder/dremel and bits. Apparently, you will be permanently affixing it with epoxy? I've had some success with white Marine-Tex to glue/color cracks in gel-coat; so.....
That said; I have a similar problem on my side decks at the cockpit coaming.. I'll probably end. up epoxying in a 'glass tube to the raised deck portion abovethe hull joint. Only six inches of rise available and with both the fitting and tubing, I'd be below the joint
