I was going to add some custom fat sacs underneath my seats and wanted to drill (hole saw) a hole underneath the seat supports that sit perpindicular to the bow/stern line of the boat. It would be about a 1" hole that would allow a hose to pass through and connect one bag (the rear) to another so that they could both fill/empty off of the stock gravity ballast plumbing.

I was wondering if anyone has drilled through the carpet and how it reacts? (frays, unravels, or is fine?) I see the new 09's come with a hole precut and carpeted over already.

Any info appreciated.
