    electrical dept. in lowes carries a self adhesive black nylon small square with ports for zip ties to run thru. Run hose with gentle bend over transom and attach near top on stern with these fasteners. Also work excellent for transducer cables going over stern.

    I get that I can just hang it over the side; this is how I've got it now. I want to keep it cleaner looking so want to mount through the hull with a bulkhead. Just wondering about locations on boats that have the through hull discharge. I'm leaning to the side discharge. Would be easier to see while motoring than trying to look out the back and see if pump is working.

    Going out the side is how my Triton came. It was easy to see it pumping out. If you are set on cutting, that’s where I’d cut. Shouldn’t be too hard.

    Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to do. THat is where is is on couple of buddy's boats, but some also have it coming out the back. But going out the side I think will be best. 3/4 hole saw and some silicone and I'll be set.

    I put mine out the corner, as you described earlier ITT. Bought a fitting at Bass pro, made it cleaner looking, and it was cheap.

    Don't use silicone........... ever. Buy 3m 5200 fast cure sealant. The best stuff by far. Your boat will never leak at that spot.

    Just sayin
