IN­STALL THE IN­TAKE

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR | WEEKEND WORKBOOK -

WakeMak­ers’ avail­able Thru-Hull Pin­point Mag­nets help match the lo­ca­tion on the un­der­side of the hull to a spot se­lected in­side. We rec­om­mend in­stalling a back­ing plate for a more ro­bust in­stal­la­tion. Cut and cham­fer a 11/16-inch hole. Bed in­side and out­side with the sup­plied marine sealant/ad­he­sive, in­sert the stem from un­derneath, and thread on the nut from in­side; tighten the fit­ting and wipe away ex­cess sealant. In­stall the ball valve on top of the fit­ting, then thread the hose adapter into the top of the valve. Use pipe sealant to en­sure all are wa­ter­tight.
