Replace Through Hulls on OR 22

I couldn't find this in the archives.
My question: I am looking at a late 80s Outrage 22 that needs to have at least one of the through hulls replaced due to corrosion. I figure if one is bad, I might was well do them all.
How difficult is this to do when your only access is from the outside? Any tricks I should know about? Any time I have replace through hulls on other boats I had access from the inside to put the retaining nut on and attatch hose clamps.
And is it possible to replace hoses in the drain tubes, or are they foamed in place. How do I determine if the tubes are OK to just put new through hulls on.
And finally, what is the best source of through hulls for this application.

You might have more success finding helpful posts if you do a search using the phrase "replacing drain tubes".
I recently replaced the tubes and thru-hulls on my 1989 Outrage 22', so I'm familiar with the process. I'd be happy to help, but I'm not quite sure which thru hulls you are referring to - and I do not understand your reference to only being able to access the thru-hulls from the outside.
Sue at Twin Cities Marine is a wonderful source for any parts you may need. I buy parts from her even though she's 1500 miles away. (We don't have a competent local Whaler dealer, so I HAVE to go out of state. If you have a competent local dealer the parts person there should be able to help.) The Twin Cities web address is listed below.
