  I've done it over the top on other boats
  Posted by: clarion on Jun-20-13 6:23 AM (EST)
 

... but it does have the disadvantages Pete mentioned. Two more could be added to Pete's good list. Over the top means more lifting and less efficiency. And over the top means it can interfere with paddle strokes, depending on the setup. You may have to use more hose to get it out of your way. More hose means more backwash when you turn it off.

I don't think I'm going to rush out and do through-the-hull penetrations on my other boats ... except maybe my tandem since it is interfering with my right-sided son's paddle strokes.
