Hull fittings


Recommended Posts

My vlx has been quite a project over the last 4 months. i bought it used and very abused. it looked like it was run onto an island (every piece of underwater gear was destroyed) and then some one went clypto with the drivetrain and ballast system. Pics of project will be posted when complete.

anyway heres the latest issue. in the V-drive area there are 6 holes for thru hull accessories

1- paddlewheel

2- Drain

3- Ballast fill port

4- ballast fill starboard

5- water pickup

6- ????????

Hole 6 measures 1-9/16" i see no "Puck" on the floor for depth

is it possible the the brass canoe thing was mounted here in the past, or does anyone have any idea what may have been there?

Please Help...

Got a picture? My VLX has a right rear ballast pickup, a left rear ballast pickup, a paddle wheel, a coolant water intake, a drain and a small trasnducer for temp and depth.

In the front there is a drain and a front ballast pick up.
