    from my reading on here i'm almost certain they cut it off with a cut off wheel or some other tool as close as possible filled the hole with jb weld (if you don't like JB weld then quick steel is also a nice alternative) and then ground down the area to a nice finish.

    I had forgot about doing the jet works and it using the place of the siphon bilge.......... i do believe you must use the island racing y stealth fitting they talk about to do it this way

    I left my siphon bilge after i did my jetworks mod i just used a through hull fitting, i wanted to keep all the water out if any got in at all

    I chucked my nozzle in the freezer, the used a drift with a shoulder that fit inside the tube and tapped it right out, when it got near the end where I couldn`t use the drift, I grabbed it with a pair of pliers and out it came...
