Here are some pics the system consists of four Johnsen reversible pumps all with their own water feed.All we are waiting on to finish is the sacks and the fittings to come in from flyhigh

What is the hole in the floor that you covered?
Did you reinforce the bottom of the panel track? I see you reinforced the panels.
what size sac? is it the same on both sides?

h20king 06-07-2011 7:43 PM

The sac on the starboard side will only run to the built in cooler and the hole I think is for a garbage can.We put bigger screws in the factory bottom plastic channel if it does not hold we will change it out for aluminum but I think it will be OK.The sack on the port side should be about 1500-1600 lbs and thats on top of the factory ballast under the floor.Cant wait to see what this thing will do I hope we get similar results to Stanley wheelhouses Malibu they say imitation is the greatest form of flattery

H,
Nice install. You will love the goofy wave. The 247 actually produces a better goofy wave with less weight. Please move your fuel vent. If you don't water will get in your fuel via that vent and cost you a motor. But more importantly, cost you time on your boat. Hope your wave is bigger and longer than ours!!!!

Cheers
Wheelhouse

Stanley I ordered a one way check valve but am not opposed to the idea of relocating it where did you put yours??

getting closer the custom sacks arrived today

I'm planning to relocate my reversible pumps so thanks for the ideas, but I'm wondering how you're going to change the boat impeller or even the ballast pump impellers with the pumps mounted on the backside of the mounting board above the engine exhaust.

impeller can still be reached without removing the pumps and the pump rack is easily dropped to access pump impellers
