OK I have been thinking about it and maybe a new through hole below the waterline will be the way to go. I think I can do it sitting at the dock, no need for a hall out.
Infarct I think I can re-purpose this one to one of my bilge pumps eliminating a valve!

Not kidding

You must be talking about the through hole under water?
Not kidding.
I have changed a few or more through hole valves that are below the water line, no problem. I also know some dock mates that have installed some through holes below the water line while in the water. I do not see the big deal? You’re not going to sink. Ok the insurance company may not like it.

I will ask around

I have not decided if that is the way I am going to go. But I will ask around the dock and find out how they did it.

I would highly recommend hauling the boat if you're going to be putting in a new 1-1/2" through-hull.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I would be very interested in a Video!

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

I hear ya, you don't want to pollute. That's why on my boat, I ran a hose from the macerator up to spreader-level on my mast, with an aft-facing shower head attachment. Keeps it all in the cockpit.

Bah, I replaced a below the waterline thru-hull with the boat in the water, you just have to be quick and have a scuba diver ready to insert the new thru-hull as soon as you finish the hole. As you can clearly see from the video a little water got in during the procedure but no big deal.
