    Inside the hull? Or outside the hull? Outside the hull you can just put a vaccuum cap on it with a ziptie....

    Inside the hull, just loop it around and clamp it!

    The hose goes through the hull and connects to the OPAS. Inside the hose runs up on top of the pump tunnel and has a fitting where the hose from the other side meets it and then it looks like it goes down through the hull again to the pump. If your confused I can post a picture.

    The water pressure from the pump, is sent to a cylinder on each OPAS. At a certain water pressure, the OPAS paddles lift from water pressure, to clear the hull line.

    OK, there is a valve that looks like a small bildge pump on top of the pump tunnel that has two hoses connected to it. Take on hose off the valve and discard it. Take the other hose and loop it around the valve fitting making a complete loop. Then your done.

    The hose that comes out of the hull to the venturi you can put a vaccuum cap on it with a clamp or zip tie.

    Make sure you re clamp the loop inside the hull where the valve feeds the left and right OPAS.

    are you removing opas?
    if so yank everything out. also remove the thru hull valve thingy with the two hoses.
    pull it all out.
    make a blockoff with a peice if flat plastic or vinyl, or aluminum...anything
    predrill 2 mounting holes and seal it with silicone or ultra black.
    use the 2 mounting screws it comes with to screw blockoff down from the inside of the hull.
    no loopy hoses, thats just clutter.
    ps you also need to blockoff the outlet port on your pump.
    i used a pvc plug, worked perfect. .30 cents at a plumbing supply store.
