Just make sure you put some bags in the front. From past experience, I think about 800 in back and 4-500 in front TAPS on 5 and it will be killer.

Joeblows (maybe he should have thought about that one)

Joe,

How is that 180 coming? Maybe you should get your wake to wake down first.

First Joe blows , and now he wants someone to kiss his ass. Maybe he calls his boat a Gayliner too!!!!! Sounds like he wants a cat fight. You Bit@#!!!!!!!!!

As far as the weight up front, if you dont mind towing with weight in the boat. Put some sand bags up there and forget about it.

Hi Erik,

How do you know this?

 
By Mike Freeman (ghetto) on Wednesday, November 13, 2002 - 10:25 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
sorry to say I had to do the same thing.
Mind you still working on my own system, 9 sacks, 15 jabsco water puppys 3600lbs when full and will take 4 mins.
So far all inlets and plumbing to the sacks complete just the electrics to do.
And before you say anything i Know this is overkill but I just wanted to see if it could be done. I'll probably just use 1800lbs of weight which will take 2mins to fill which I like the sound of.
God I love working on my boat, alot.

Porter,
I know this because after 4 months I still had not recieved my system. So i called many times and no one answered the phone, finally I left a message saying that I was going to cancell my card unless someone got back to me, nobody called back.

I have a through hull fitting opposite of the engine water intake and use a 1000 GPH pump ( I wired it to the Shower pump wire that I don't use so it is the last switch on the panel next to the driver) that goes to a T fitting to two Straight Line Twin sacks (375 lbs. each.) They fit perfectly in the Tige 23V storage lockers (same size as 21V). It fills in about 6 minutes. I use a shut off valve when full. To empty I just open the valve and they siphon right back out the intake (15 min. plus). I am going to add another T before it hits the sack for overflow and add a pump to each sack to drain. I also have 250 lbs. of lead in the front.
