The only hitch I had was tightening the bronze thru hull, spun a little tightening down.
    I used the existing drain tubing as overflow with check valves, had to extend to the top of the bags. I used the extra 3/4 tubing and fittings from the fill lines. Kept with the existing 3/4 lines for the center as well. didn't think it was worth pulling floor up.
    Thank you very much. 5:00 mentioned to me that he had to order extra hose...but the wakemakers kit has changed a bit since he did it several years ago. Was the hose length sufficient for your XLV?

    For the electrical, did you use the existing fuse panel?

    The extra hose was the existing fill line, I used for vent. I think the only thing that wasnt in the kit was the 3/4 check valves for the vent.

I'm using a Johnson reversible on the OEM scupper intake with the OEM 3/4" line to fill/empty a 400 bag and another 250 bag that are under seats.

    So at any given time I'll have up to 4 pumps running.
    So, no electric ball valves or manifold setup? Just pump, check valve, and hose into the bag? Did you have to do anything with the switches and electrical setup?

    1" thru hulls to 1" ball valves to T1200 Tsunami pumps to 1.25" line to 1" check valves. Line strung up as high as possible in the rear lockers to prevent passive filling. 3/4" vent line on each bag. T1200 pump on each drain going to thru hull on the opposite side (to lessen passive draining when listed). Center bag has a vented loop to prevent passive filling. Drain and vent thru hulls are above the top of the bag, so no worries with passive draining on front bag.

    I also have a reversible off the factory scupper intake. That fills a 400 bag under the surfside seat and another 250 under the surfside bow seat. That has check-valves on the drains to help suck the bag dry as well as a check valve on the fill line to enable an above water line drain off a Tee.

    No ball valves or manifolds.

    I just got the "swell" surf gate. Have not tried yet but looked pretty similar to the mission for less money

    Build one for cheaper with a suction handle, cutting boards, ss screws, and some time.

    They all do the same thing - delay convergence off the back of the boat.
