With some experience (six or seven builds) with transoms I wouldn't worry about working around the valve placement. Looks like you could run a piece of pipe below the valve and above the D-ring, or just go off the top of the tube and out and down. As long as you can get the hose of the pump into the valve without kinking, you should be fine.

I placed an order for a new pro 16xt in May!

I was told by the shop that I have an expected delivery at the end of March. (I knew it would take that long) Seeing that others ordered last fall and are getting them a year later has me a bit concerned. I guess I'll be holding on to my current boat until the new one is in my possession.
Yes, definitely hope for the best, but don't be surprised if there are delays. Currently, the biggest issue causing delays is the number ships backed up at the ports. A record number of cargo ships are stuck outside LA. Once a ship got to port, it would take about a week for container to work it's way through the system and get on a truck. It's now taking 6-10 weeks. So, even if a container leaves the factory on time, it maybe delayed getting to it's final destination. We are also starting to hear reports of various overseas factories not being able to produce at full capacity because of lack of workers and/or COVID shutdowns. Manufacturers (overseas and domestic) do have a better handle on these issues and are getting better at managing them, but expect 2022 to be similar to 2021 in regard to delays and issues with product availability.

Kermit the Boat (13.5 pro) arrived in July, here is a pic of his christening!!! He replaced the High Life, a 1996 14 foot, that still has many year of life. Sold to a nice couple in AZ, I’m sure they are enjoying that ride. Cheers to Hyside!! Great boats, great people and great adventures 🤟

Beautiful boats everyone! I'm on my way down to check out a new custom frame being built by Rogue Gear Works for my 30 yo Hyside. I bought mine from one of the outfitters I guided for and she's still going strong, used every summer!
Fyi for those of you in the market for a 16'xt Hyside, this looks like a good deal:

Anybody got a white Pro 15 they wanna trade for my pro 14?

Mine came in at 13’9” and I’m wishing I had that extra 12-15”. If I ordered a 15 now, they have a prospective delivery date of July 2022, and we all saw how that went this year
