That is how I have mine setup as well. It seems to work fine

Nice work footin. I want to add some ballast to our X2. The little woman is NOT a fan of ballast bags out in the open. You're gonna love this boat!!

Ok, with some twisting of the hose and a wire clamp it turned out pretty good.

Latest dilemma, the vent fittings. The one on the left I ordered from Wakemakers for the fat sac vents, the one on the right is a factory fitting out of my boat from the bilge pump discharge and they don't match.
They will be fairly close together and I know it will bug me so I ordered two more of the one on the left from Wakemakers with a 3/4 hose barb for the bilge.

I will be drilling the three holes for the vents later this week.

My MC dealer said I needed to order from them if I wanted matching vents, I was hoping to get to the bottom of this so I don't have to pay dealer markups
