I noticed the previous owner dragged my boat around a lot and ground holes in the brass bottom thru hulls.. Sooo.. has anyone out there replaced them and any tips/tricks you can tell me? I am assuming I get the parts directly from BW, hm?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bret, this should get you started, they used PVC and 5200 to seal each end. There is also a thread here that explains how to search for threads, search for 2 years because there have been some pretty goos discussions on this topic using PVC and orig. bronz tubes.
P.S. How is your conversion comming? Would like to see some pictures when you finish.

Thanks Darrell, I will take a look at that. The conversion is going well though there was more damage than first suspected. Now that the hull is out of the water, bottom painted and baking in the sun, I can see a few spots in the hull that have been comprimised and is leaking water through pin holes sooooooo.. The epoxy master goes back at it again! LOL.. got a handle on it though and should, after putting new bronze tubes or whatever is best, be in the water very soon. I will definately be posting some pics on this very soon..
Oh if any of you were following the thread on the chain saw whaler and had any thoughts that they changed foam compisition in 1980, this should put that argument to rest.. I have almost 20 gallons of water soaked up in the foam of my whaler and its a 1986.
