    what i've read, and did/worked for me was tape the hull, then tape the template on. after that, on my drill i had a pilot bit that i got started in the forward gear untill the blades of the hole saw themselfs were about to contact the hull. then put your drill in reverse till your break through the gell coat and it wont chip! worked good for me, good luck
