I ordered the quick connect system. For this you have to order 2 parts:

The part that screws into the sac:

And the other part that goes on the fill/vent hose:

This thread got my juices flowing, I have a warranty bag coming from wakemakers and it has additional connections on the bottom. I am going to plumb the starboard pump to the bag also giving me two pumps working on one bag.

Got the holes drilled and bag vents and the matching bilge fittings installed last night.

The single port
The sac and the matching rear bilge fitting on the starboard side rear
And the bow and matching front bilge fitting

The two in the front look a little out of alignment and they are a little bit, but if you stand back they follow the curve of the top deck (at least that's what I tell myself since I cant seem to measure correctly)

Now that I'm done turning the boat into Swiss cheese, the only things left are to route and install the vent hoses, install one of the rear panels, lay in the rear sacs and clean it up.:

Oh yeah, I also have to put away what seem like every tool I own that are all over the work bench and inside the boat.

I really do not remember getting all these things out???

I have a quick question if you don't mind a little derail. But do I need these connectors or can we just use shrink/solder etc?
