Not sure as to the power issue as that sounds like a known Malibu issue.

They used to say 15-20% off the "premium" brands and 10-15% off the "budget" brands was a good deal. Manufacturers claimed they didn't have as much mark up in the budget brands(Moomba, Axis,...

Man you 18 I/O must have rode poorly in the chop, as most will admit that a 2012 VLX (while an awesome boat) is not a great rough water performer. They are more based on the flat aft ski boat...

I always combined my drain and vent line. Just have to add a check valve in the vent line. Requires then just one hole per bag vs 2. But you do still need one above waterline thru hull per bag.
