More holes.

After a period of inactivity, I thought I'd better get on with something.
I am mid way through fitting the seacocks for the head. First I made a couple of backing pads out of marine ply offcuts. Then bit the bullet and drilled through the hull. I have positioned the intake forward of the outlet.. Not sure if the is any hard and fast rules here but I didn't fancy sucking up what had just been discharged.
I shortened the thread on the skin fittings to give the hose as much room to bend as possible.
Assembly was straight forward. I glooped the joints in sikaflex and assembled. I shall leave the final tightening until tomorrow to let the sikaflex go off and then trim off the excess.
