pro's and con's of thru hull exhaust?
I'd like to do the thru hull exhaust, but i am not too sure about jumping waves and having water back up into the engine

You don't have to worry about water backing up into the engine. There is a hump in the exhaust pipe that prevents this. Also, do you realize the thru hull exhaust opening is even higher than that of the stock opening?

no I didnt realize that, thanks, I did the cosmetic work on my ski, but never messed with the engine or any of that stuff, this is my first ski.

they cost about 220.00, the scary part is drilling holes into the ski, especially one of the holes is close to the fuel cap. its about 5 or 6 holes to drill on each side. fairings come with the push in plastic screw caps to secure it. The one thing you need to do is use some sealant on the caps before pushing them in. I didnt do this and I noticed more water coming out of the drain plugs after use than I would get before.
just line up the fairings and mark the holes, drill and install... I painted mine before installing.
and ty for the comment hulk, The ski matches my hummer nicely now
