I have a 2004 B52V I bought used a few years ago.  I'm still trying to figure out all the parts.  There are four chrome ports, one on the stern and three on the hull.  I know that the forward port on the starboard side is the drain for the bilge pump (see attached pic showing "bilge drain").  There's another right behind it that looks identical (same pic - labelled "A") and another on the opposite side (see second pic with label "B").  And there's a different looking port on the stern (see third pic).  Can anybody tell me what those are for?  I have a feeling the two on opposite sides are overflow for the ballast tanks, but I don't want to try to overfill them to check, in case there IS no overflow.  Thanks for any help.  (I had sent an email to MB Sports a while back and never got a reply.)

back is the vent for your gas tank, the sides are vents for your ballast system
