    Yes now the exhaust comes out the back where it should in the first place, no structual probe that I have read about, no leaks if installed and sealed right, a added hole in your ski your concern isn't the first just close your eyes and drill baby drill!

    technically, you'll be drilling 5 holes. the big hole and the 4 smaller ones to bolt up the thru hull tip. You shouldn't get any leaks when sealed up correctly. I haven't heard of anyone having structural problems with the thru hull. you also need to get some opas blockoffs if you decide to go thru hull.

    You will have to ditch your opas to go thru hull pretty much, so that is why he is reccomending some good block offs to replace opas.

    I think there are some Riva Pro block offs in classifieds and might even be some RE's but not sure.
