Any thoughts on using a manifold with a 1.5" thru hull vs a 1" thru hull for each pump? Looking to use the tsunami 1200 pump. Thanks!

How many pumps are you planning on running? For me I wouldn't do more than 2 pumps an intake. Those 1200's fill quick. I prefer those over the jabsco or johnsons.

I plan on having 4 1200's, one for each 750 in the rear lockers, one to replace the existing KGB pump, and one for the integrated bow bag. Initially i was thinking i would build a manifold and put two 1.5" intakes to avoid drilling 4 holes in the boat, but now i'm thinking it will be more cost effective to drill the 4 holes and use a 1" thru hull for each pump.
