I had the same thing done on mine. I have a Faria Depth Finder/Air/Water Temp Sensor. I ran the wiring for my water temp sensor through the tubing hole for the pitot pickup on the starboard side. Or, I should say, the mechanic who installed it for me did. I got a special sized thru-hull (not in-hull) depth finder pickup that fits the 2" hole from my old (no longer used) Perfect Pass paddle wheel. The depth finder pickup is flush mounted through the hole.

Air temp sensor is just tossed up under the dash.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
