    Thru hull fittings-gctid406299

    I have been lucky enough? to find an OE Explorer 2070.

    First thing I have to do is replace the Jabsco toilet which I didn't think would be a very big job, but.

    Where do I find thru hull connectors with no hole? I don't want to do a fiberglass/gel coat repair.

    Any suggestions on hole plug and replacement pot?

    Thanks.

    I am sorry but I have no idea what you are looking for.

    Please elaborate on what you are trying to do.

      Why don't you want the through hull any more?

        I've read numerous opinions on this matter and most people say to put a new Thru hull in and wire it closed. Otherwise, you are looking a fiberglass job best left to experts.

          The boat has a flush toilet with overboard discharge.

          Need to fill the discharge hole after removing the toilet.

          Just trying to find blank fitting rather than match Gel Coat color.

            Get a threaded thru-hull and put a PVC cap over the end.

              Without a seacock? I would be a bit uncomfortable with that. Maybe, if it's above the waterline ...

                Just close the current valve and plug it. Cap it if its threaded...fill it with epoxy...clamp a hose on there and shove a dowel in the hose and clamp that.

                I wouldn't bother removing it to just replace it with one you aren't going to use anyway.

                    There was a previous discussion here about waste discharge systems; many owners reported having their discharge below the waterline.

                      I just recently purchased a 2003 2452 Classic Hardtop Cruiser and the toilet hasn't worked yet . . . . figured I was in for the pump-parts-replacement-dance but it pumps out just fine . . . so figured on doing the swap out for the Jabsco Lite Flush that some others have done (electric and larger bowl and simple bolt-on replacement :right ) . . . . anyway, was swimming around last weekend and dove under to see if some mud daubber wasps may have made a home in the ports and lo' n' behold, they're plugged!! . . . . Like a mushroom looking thingy sticking down out of both thru-hulls (one for toilet and the other for the AC water pump) . . . . I'm planning on getting underneath the boat tomorrow while it's on the trailer and seeing what I can do about it . . . . I'm hoping they're threaded types of a screw-in to the thru-hulls . . . . I hope. . . . . . if you want them, I'll send them to you (former owner was on the ocean and guess he didn't want the corrosion or whatever). . . . . who knows?
