Black Water Thru-Hull Location

5408 Views 48 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  eherlihy
My boat does not have a thru-hull for the black water output. I plan to drill a hole, and install the thru-hull and seacock. How far down relative to he waterline should the hole be drilled? Thanks in advance for the help.

I'm a little late in suggesting this but I have the same boat, circa 1991, and Ward from Beneteau in S.C. is a great resource for specific design questions or locations of thru-hulls, etc. I believe if you sent him the numbers off the Beneteau plate he can help you with knowing what the original plans were. He's a busy man and email is usually best but I've had great luck. Google Ward from Beneteau and I think you'll find him quite easily.

We love our 35s5!
