I need to cut a 1" hole above the waterline for the exit fitting.
Is it a good idea to try to get the discharge above the heeled waterline?

Re: Cutting above waterline hole in boat

Getting the hole above the heeled waterline is not necessary. Just be certain that you put a loop in the discharge hose with the top of the loop above the hole and secure the hose. This is the arrangement I have on my B27. I made the mistake of not securing the loop and it fell while heeled and before I knew it,the cabin sole was underwater. It took a few panic stricken minutes to find out what happened and remedy the situation.
PS: Hole saw definitely.

Re: Cutting above waterline hole in boat

The primary bilge line leaves via the stern, and I will do the same with the secondary. And I will put in the highest loop in the line that that I can fit in.

As for cutting the hole: (Hellosailors' idea wins)
I'm going with the laser, awesome! Hopefully I won't nick my LPG line
