Something like this, it would be a fairly flush mount:

Another good thought, but I have a 12V plug about 3' away under the starboard seat.

I would not remove that stern light post - atleast around here if the DNR/Sheriff pulls you over they make you demonstrate functioning legal navigation lights - so you need that pole - bet you could pick up a spare pole, cut the pole and splice a cigarette lighter onto a cut down light pull and use the same socket for a power source though!

If I had that hole already I would consider just using a cheap through hull bulkhead fitting like used for a bilge pump to close the hole, run that hose down to the bilge and be done with it. Or... add another bilge pump/discharge for ballast.

For daytime use?

I used the same valve on my ‘04 X-30. I’m guessing this is the right size for almost every MasterCraft.

I use it every fall/spring for winterization and “summarization” because my trailer bunks block my intake. More importantly, it’s waaay easier.

I also use it at Lake Powell for decontamination when we pull out. I keep a fitting on board that fits their hot water pressure sprayer.

That does not look like the original damper plate it was a crappier design with no encapsulated springs. How many hours did you get out of that one?
