Anyone done this using 1 1/2" through hull? I'd like to minimize the number of holes drilled (and my chances of screwing it up )so was thinking going bigger and using a manifold to feed the 3 Johnson pumps....if so, how we'll does this work and will fill times be good?

Thanks Ross

If you plan on adding that many pumps, I think you should add three new thru hulls... I wouldn't T off the manifold. I added a super sac'r this year and am having one added because MC recommended NOT to share them as it creates contention. As for higher volume pumps, they are coming...first sign is the Rule over side 3700gph being sold in a few weeks with the Eight.3 bags...

3m 4000, did you use on both sides of the thru hull fitting?

On the other brass connections did use any tape on the threads?

Thanks

Yes, I used the 3m on both sides of the thru hull. I used pipe dope on the brass fittings but I'm sure thread tape would work just as well.
