TDR box install question
So after a few weeks of mike helpin me work on this boat my confidence in gettin my own hands dirty has gone way up.
So tonight in mikes absence due to vacation i decided to knock the TDR box out on my own. All went well with the exception of how the thru-hull lined up with the box outlet. I couldnt get it to sit flush no matter what. Best i could do was a slight angle leaving a small gap in a section between the thru hull and box. I attached some pics so u can see what i mean. Is this normal for it to not match up excatly? Will this cause me any problems in the long run? Any insight is better than none.
As always thanks you guys,
Heres a lil clip of the first start up for yall

Can you go further to the rear with the pipe?

If the riva pipe is not touching the thru hull tip you can .shorten the coupler until its touching.
If it already is touching can you push the box further in the mid pipe.

im assuming at this point that the gap is not good and i should get it lined up before i ride??

You probably be fine to ride if not leaking.
Eventually it could wear thru the couplers.
Did u have the riva pipe with oem box? (Assuming thru hull exit is correct location)
If so your issue is the box location. (Exit tube)
