Duckbill Drain Kit from Atlantis....
So I purchased this damn kit from them and it cost 46 bucks. When I think kit I think two, not one. This is very misleading and I feel like I have been ripped off HARD!
Are you guys even using these damn things? I am starting to think now there has to be a better way to get the water out of the hull than spending 100 bucks on duckbills that will break.
Anyways I am thinking about returning this "single" duckbill "kit"
What a rip off.

Also, what about the RIVA kits I see. Do those include two? And it looks like one has a check valve to make sure water doesn't get in. Hell I would atleast expect that for all this money. lol

Oh yeah, that kit only has one in it.
Kinda pricey, and most of the guys hate them.
I use them from time to time to keep my hull dry. Especially after washing it out. The key is to keep them clean from debris.

I bought those way back. Always had a dry until until I put them on. Floating down river relaxing. Bilge pump kicks on. Lots of water in the hull. I took them back off and sold the set of 2 for $50. Gave the other set to Hydrotoys. Never again on my ski.
A rule auto bilge pump does a great job of getting water out for the same cost.

I did the same thing bought the 1 and thought it would be 2 and had to order another 1.They were ok for racing ONLY,but just Rec riding they leaked bad on my ski,and I keep them cleaned out. When I was at the Kerr Lake Ride we stopped and took about a 1 1/2 hour lunch and when I got back to my ski it had about 6 " of water in it. After that I installed a bildge pump and took the duck bills off.
