Are the plastuc thru hulls used in the newer Parkers a problem? If so, do you replace them 5 years (for example) down the line, immediately, or when they start showing signs of cracking? I'm looking at the 25' walkaraound.

I have a 2002- 2510 WA and the through don't show signs of cracking yet. Megabyte on this board just replaced his, you do do a search in the project section, he has pics of the installation.

My 2002 2510 WA also has plastic thru-hulls. Someone indicated that their 2005 2820 also had plastic. I just don't understand why Parker would use plastic an otherwise, well built boat.

FWIW, Gem-Lux makes some awesome stainless steel thru-hulls, in all sizes and configurations, e.g., straight or angled. See here, they're what I use.

There goes another project I have to do. At least the thru-hulls are all above the water line though. Still very important though. Definitely wouldn’t want the bilge pump thru-hull to crack when you’re taking in water for some reason. :shock:

Nice. Did you get it yet? I tested it in my house. It's very bright. It looks like the screw holes line up with the OEM light, so no drilling required (hopefully).

Personally, I don't mind some off-topic posts - all good info, though it would be easier to search on a separate "projects" post also. Thanks all who responded. Based on responses I probably will not be rushing to replace any thru hulls immediately after purchase.

Interesting how I am reading about thru hulls and then the topic switches to looking thru little holes at light and other projects related to lighting and a two year list of things to do.
I was hoping for folks to stick to the topics posted.
Chill out. What's the big deal? I'm sure if anyone has any more info to share on thru-hulls they'll post it regardless of my "2 year project list". We're all friends here and its still a small community. We shouldn't make this forum become like "that other site". :roll:

And MattinRI, I'm sorry if I "hijacked" your thread. I really didn't mean to do that. Sorry. 8)
