|I know this has been discussed before...I think, but I couldn't find it. I might need to add one or two to my sacs for my ballast system. |
How is it done so the weight of the water doesn't just blow the fitting out of the sac? Any particualr glue/sealant?
|??? the fitting screws onto the cap. Maybe I'm not understanding what your asking? |
|I used a Rule thru hull fitting which has a wide flat flange. I cut a hole the size of the hose part of the thru hull in the sack, and stretched the sack around the flange. I used 3m 5200 sealant on the flange and on the underside of the nut, and tightened it up. No leaks in 2 yrs, works great. |
|Oh yeah, I did it on a Fat Seat with 1k+ lbs of weight, and kids jumping on it all day. |
|Hey psych, |
That's what I wanted to hear....thank you
So am I understanding right, you cut in your own port to the sack? If so that would save me a couple hundred bucks to have sacks made with additional ports.
|Yep. I used a plastic thru hull from West Marine. Rule is the brand you want because the flange is very wide. Cut a small hole and pop the big end through the bag. Use some sealer and put the nut on and go wakeboarding |
|Well what the hell, I would have to buy new sac's anyway if it dosent work. Thanks for the pic. I am off to West Marine today for a couple fittings.|
