Thanks for the suggestions.
I will do so measuring since I just received the through hull. It could very well be a 1" hole that is needed.
I do have a step bit. It would cover the 3/4"-1" hole. I am considering using it, but thought the Bi-Metal hole saw would be more accurate.
I'll have to decide on which to use.
Yes, I will haver a beer....but maybe after.....so I don't %$#$ it up! :mrgreen:
Maybe have two beers after measuring, center punching the location and drilling a pilot hole. Personally, my measuring accuracy seems to decrease exponentially with the quantity of alcohol consumed.
I use hole saws for bigger holes but, the step bits really work well up to an inch or so and this would be my preference for this hole. I usually start from one side go half way through and then finish from the other side. This seems to cut down on rough edges.
A 3/4” or larger twist drill would make a mess if it grabs.
