According to these numbers, an 1 1/2 could support 3 pumps with only gravity pushing it, and way more than that at 20psi. These pumps run about 10psi, so it is somewhere in between that. Based on the linear rise with pressure, 10 psi should support about 60 gallons per minute through 1 1/2".

I think at this point, I am only trying to convince myself

LOL ^^^

You sound way more well versed on the dynamics of water flow and capacities than I am.
If nothing else I get to drill holes in my boat and speed up the fill and empty process by adding some more thru hulls.

Where are you guys buying the lead ballast? Are you using lead shot bags or bricks?

Foggy there are a few options. www.bombwake.com has steel pellets and is around $450 shipped for 400lbs (50lb bags).

Jared Cutler makes some bags called Leadwake and the pricing is similar but its 50lb lead bags that are sealed with an integrated handle. The benefit to lead is it will be smaller in size due to lead being more dense. Cant go wrong with either. His contact info is Leadwake@yahoo.com

Bruce at Action Watersports comes through again with MC part numbers:
2 port through hull: 300273
1 port through hull: 300272

I have one of each of these in my 2012 X2. Looks like a 3 port part number doesn't exist though.
