1. Be careful when removing old tubes. If old tube is removed improperly it could enlarge the holes in the hull and liner.
2. When preparing to install the drain tube, install the tube from the inside of boat and mark length of drain tube utilizing the contour of the hull (this will provide the best seal when crimping the new tube in place).
3. Apply 5200 liberally to both the inside flange and outside of the drain tube when installing (excess can be cleaned up easily utilizing acetone).
4. When crimping/flanging new tube into place utilize caution not to over crimp/flange tube. When crimped/flanged the tube should not distort hull or liner.

And I got the old brass tube off with a dremel with a small wheel.
You used a Dremel to cut off the flange. Did you use pvc or something similar to push the old tube out? Thank so much for your offer of loaning the tool. I'm in Sarasota so will need to buy one. Is this the appropriate tool?
