    Looks like both of you guys drilled thru the plastic on back of the computer. Did you use a bolt with a nut and washer. Or self tapping screws?

    The mid-wall is a composite material. I would not trust self-taping screws to work long term, as the hull flexes and bounces hard as you ride fast across rough water.

    Use stainless steel bolt hardware and Nylock nuts.

    There is plenty of room to drill holes and mount stuff to the mid-wall. Plan where to route the added hoses.

    This is the front side of mid-wall after the electrical box is unbolted and moved aside.


    On my own GP1800 I rerouted multiple hoses in the rear compartment.

    Also note the grease fitting on the sriveshaft bearing housing, down low on the mid-wall.

    I used 1/4” stainless bolts, fender washers and nylocks. My strainer I’m using has available different size screens u can use and it mounts without a bracket

    I'm curious if there really is a need for this, as the holes on the water pickup screen are pretty small. around 1/16". it would be worse if the graco screen got plugged I think?
