The mold was made solid when laying up. The holes are cut after the glass has set up. Use raw water to flush. If in salt water, the salt kill bacteria and will help keep your potty clean. If no holes have been cut yet, install the inlet thru hull above the inlet of the head and forward. Cut the outlet thru hull below the head and aft. Gravity drain. If you would like pictures, let me know, I have mine out right now. Also, you might want to consider installing a sewage treatment unit. It treats the waste (brine tank and electricity) and you can discharge anywhere. I have one on my boat, coast guard approved, and you don't have to worry about it. If thru hulls are not installed yet, come up with a good plan before cutting holes! Another thought to consider before locating positon of thru hulls is clearnace. Always install a shut off valve at the thru hull location. Spend a little extra and get the good stuff!! The navy learned the hard way on submarines!

Yes that would be helpful, if you could send pics to my email of where they are, as far as forward and aft the head, and how far below the water line. Thanks a million Bryan
