I currently have 2 Fly High ballast bags, one is in the bow and one is in the ski locker. I also have one Tsunami 1200 gph pump that plugs into the cigarette lighter.
I am getting tired of fumbling around with the hose, the power cord, moving from the middle of the boat to the front, removing seat cushions, etc to fill the bags.
I would like to simplify this setup but not necessarily to the point of a fully automated system. And, I don't want to drill any holes in the boat.
Just something a little easier to manage and let my lazy side come through....
Is there a way I can hard wire the power, fill and drain lines then just throw a hose (or 2) over the side of the boat from the driverís seat and hit a switch that will fill the bags?
Then throw the hose back over when I want to drain them?
I don't completely understand how the fully automated systems work but I do understand that I might need a reversible pump.
I have a cooler drain that I could tee into for draining the bags but it is a good foot higher than the bags outlet drain would be.
I don't necessarily want to fill both bags completely; I would like the ability to adjust the level in each bag independently.
Of course, I would like everything to be as leak free as possible. We have kids and they get into about everything.
