Change though Hull attachments on side of 28 foot boat

Postby vfss » Sun Nov 25, 2018 9:54 pm

Hi I have a Regal 28 foot cabin cruiser year 2000 and have lost a trough hull attachement on the center of the boat how can you reach to install a new one because you have to tighten a plastic nut on the new one from inside the boat

Would help if you indicated the model number of your vessel, and a description of what comes out of the thru hull/or it might be a black water tank or fuel tank vent? A picture is worth a thousand words.
Let us know!

I don't want to sound like a smartass, but you do have to get to the back side for sure, to install the nut, backing plate if there is/was one, and then reattach the hose etc. So it depends on what it would be behind, you might have to take apart a portion of the boat. Typically they should have access somewhere, but it may be very hard to get to. Its also typical you might have to cut out what is in front of it. Because the hull and top deck are two pieces its easy at the factory. This is where you have to cut out portions of floor or deck to get to tanks as well. They are only accessible during building. On my 3060 the only way to the fresh water tank was to cut out the floor to remove it. The fuel tank would have been worse, because it was below the mid cabin berth, however it was way to big to fit out the door opening. :shock:
Thanks, Chris

Thanks for your thoughts
The trough hull is in the middle of the boat behind the head
can not get pictures attached but I would imagine that the factory would have thought on how to change these accesories
my boat serial number is RGMRC070B000
Can not get pictures on site
maybe the factory can help with drawing on where to make the hole to get there and replace through hull attachment in the middle of the hull the boat has 3 litthe ones from top to bottum a large one is the fourth bilge pump and the fifth one it the one that was broken off it is the lowest about 6 inches above the flotation line
Thank you for your time has any one had to change these

I changed one on my 2000 2760. You have to take panels off from the aft bed. When you get back there, you will see which ones to remove. Take a couple Advil before you start the task.

I have a 2001 2660 Commodore and my fitting access is in the aft cabin behind the AC unit. You open the louver door and you can see the AC unit, behind that you see all 5 fittings.
Hope this helps
