    "another Crazy Idea"

    Clear venturi hoses

    Can someone give me info on the 2 clear hose venturi lines that are located at the back of the Ski.

    Do these hoses work like a venturi system when water passes through the pump it suck water from the bottom of the Hull.

    Reason i ask is we are developing a tunnel ram just above the Speedo to force Air into the Hull but will need a pumping mechanism to disperse any water that the tunnel Ram will take in when riding.

    (A) Has anyone tried this?
    (B) Will the Venturi system suck water from a collection tank at the front of the Hull?

    I dont know why that would not work. Yep those two hoses work with a venturi action.

    Put a "T" in one or both of them and see how it works. I would guess it would flow pretty good as you are thinking of putting the pick-up even higher than it would normally be. Once it got started it would act more like a siphon.

    Put a bilge pump in there to be safe. The venturi does not work if for some reason you can't get up to speed.

    Yeap,,,its so much fuel vapor (waaaaaaaaaay more than the fuel tank vent) that you can see a trail behind me. Way more than the exhaust leaves in its path and stock hookup. If I go near duck weeds and come back next weekend the weeds are dead. Cool stuff.
