    Angry Through hull tip on RXT is a bad dream

    Someone is laughing right now as I try to get my 6'3 self to the back end of my big comfy couch and gingerly embed fiberglass in my skin. How the hell do you guys get to the coupler clamps without go-go gadget arms?

    FYI these are the best clamps on the planet for tight situations

    At $20.00 a pop I'll stick with pulling the block offs on my PX.

    ive never pulled the block offs or used anything special.... if you but the t-bolt clamps from silicone intakes, use a 10mm deep well 1/4" drive with ratchet and its very easy to reach

    I have no blocks and I have an RXT. RXP is smaller and easier.

    I don't like the neighbors kid. If he goes in he won't come out and it will start to smell bad once the charger gets hot.

    +1. its still a b!tch to get to tho... make sure you remove anything you can to free up space and lay a blanket over the edge of the hull to minimize fiberglass slivers.

    Been there several times.

    If your going thru hull obviously your removing opas and and installing block offs.

    If your installing the thru hull tip you need to first silicone the retainer ring on the inside to the hull just using the bolts and not the tip itself.
    You can get the retainer back to rear of ski with a piece of wire.
    Then let it dry over night and the next day remove bolts and install tip.
    Now to tighten the t bolt clamp you need to use the opas holes in the side of hull.
    Put the coupler on pipe and tighten clamp. Then put clamp on end of coupler with clamp and install pipe. This takes some pefect aligning of clamp so you can access the clamp thru opas hole.
