Hey guys I've got a '02 Sanger DLX Wake that I am trying to add a center ballast to.
Question is this: Does anyone know where I can get switches to match the factory ballast/dash switches for the boat. I don't know the brand, but I need a DPDT switch to run the ballast pump and a circut breaker for protection. West Marine has switches that would work, but I'd like to make it match if possible.
For those that have done the ballast thing I'd love some opinions of the following:
I already have the bag to use in the ski locker and was thinking of adding another through hull fitting next to the one for the rear ballast and a reversible "ballast puppy" pump to pump in and out of the through hull. I was going to mount the pump under the passanger side seat, under the dash. Does this sound like a decent idea. I was could probably use the existing through hull, but I don't want to force water back into the rear ballast tank when I am draining the center if the boat is on plane. I would also like to use a reversible/self priming pump so the pump doesn't have to below the water line and so that I don't have to have a bleed for the air in the sack (if it gets excessive air trapped I can just pull the top plug). So far that's the easiest solution I can come up with.... 1 pump, 4 wires to run, a through hull fitting and 2 hoses.
Any other ideas would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
