Thanks, very similar setup to mine -I remove the props and rudders to move it around (once every four years when I haul it and take the boat home)

Your boat looks great! Looking at your through hull on the Starb side (the large one) its just above the waterline, mine was lower, and permanently submerged, that is why I ended up doing the mods I did.

The three through hulls on the Port side where the same, all just below the waterline.

If you ever have to change out the two on the Starb side for the aft bilge pump and fishbox its doable but tricky,I replaced mine with these from gemlux


The 2 aft thru hulls are on my list of future repairs. They are well above the waterline so I opted to not do them yet. They are pretty beat up from the sun. I didn't see anyway of getting my arm up in there to tighten the new ones, or get the hoses back on. I was planning on having to cut out a 4in hole on the inside and put a deck plate over it, not ideal.

My boat has a slight list to port (even without someone in the boat). With 3/4 tank starboard, 1/2 tank port. The 3 midship thru hulls are in the water on the port side. Water is up to the green boot stripe on the port side. I suppose I'll have to keep the water tank kind of full to even the boat out.
