    If you are good with drilling and measuring it is quite simple, if not, it will be very difficult. Just make sure your ski is level and the hole saw evenly hits the hull when drilling the 2 1/4" hole.

    I would rather have a alluminum pipe setup as opposed to rivas plastic...To damm easy to melt that plastic with exhaust gasses...I took my waterbox out once and it was practicaly melted to the hull...Turns out I had some weeds in my water intake...Not enough to stop the water completly but enough to make my exhaust sytem get toasty...

    Plastic is fine 90% of the time, but if you do suck up weeds, sand or sediment the plastic can melt allowing water to enter the hull and possibly cause the ski to sink. Plastic is better suited for air intakes than it is for the exhaust.
