Firstly I'll introduce myself as I have long lurked in this forum but never Registered. My name is Roland and I hail from South Florida.

With that out of the way here is my question: This may sound silly but I am looking to use a thru-hull fitting for the bilge for my lt25. The two boxes on either side of the transom perfectly block me from using the easiest route. I do not want to drill through the transom obviously but I'd also rather not have to route the hose through one of those aft boxes as I plan to foam them in. Once foamed in it would be very difficult to gain access to the thru-hull if necessity arose..so my question is: besides simply routing the hose right over the transom has anyone come up with anything else? Curious to see what others have come up with, appreciate any responses, thank you in advance

I had a LT-25. I put the fitting through the transom outside the boxes.

So it can be done! Did you put a riser loop in the hose or is it high enough past the water line?
I didn't put a reverse loop in the hose, mounted the fitting as high as it would go. I figured if water ran in the fitting as close as it was to the top of the transom I was in enough trouble that a reverse loop wouldn't help.
