IN­STALL THE OVER­FLOW/VENT FIT­TING

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR | WEEKEND WORKBOOK -

Se­lect a lo­ca­tion on the boat’s side or tran­som for the stain­lesssteel through-hull fit­ting that serves as the vent/over­flow for the bal­last bag. The fit­ting should be lo­cated higher than the wa­ter level in the bag when it is full. Cut and cham­fer a 11/16-inch hole in the de­sired lo­ca­tion. Bed the hole on both sides with the sup­plied marine sealant/ad­he­sive and in­sert the fit­ting from the out­side, then tighten and torque the fit­ting nut on the in­side to en­sure a wa­ter­tight fit. Wipe away any ex­cess sealant.
