Bilige pump install
Well last year a friend of mine had a new Sea Doo sink on him, due to a hose blowing off of the engine, and no bilige pump to pump the water out. Well I do not want this to happen to me so I am going to install a bilige pump in mine.
I started by finding a ok place to put it. I drilled holes and used sealer and pop rivits to install the base plate.
More to come on this....

just throwing it out there im no expert but did lots of research before for this, you should mount your bildge pump in the lowest posible place in you hull.it seems you bildge pump will only start working once the bottom of you hull would fill up with water,maybe that is the only possible place to mount it in the honda,and why a 360 gph?you could get at least a 500 for almost the same $$.
and you mounting thechnic looks good anyway
a bildge pump is a good add on for a ski,and a good extra insurance against water leaks well done

You are correct. You want it in the lowest part of the hull. But with the addition of large intercooler and the turbo and exhaust there is not a lot of room to mount it down low unless you mount it in the bow of the ski. But this is not an ideal location. I still have the stock venturi siphon in the lowest spot advaible. Wich will take care the normal amount of water that gets into the hull. I wanted to add this just in case a hose would bust or the thru hull fitting gave out. Just an extra peice of mind. I had the pump laying around so that is why I use it.

makes perfectly good sense i saw your intercooler install also and a free laying aroud bildge pump is always a good thing too.

I still have to add the thru hull fitting, hose and finish wiring it too. If it would just stop raining when I have time to work on it.

we need the rain, but I wish it would do it at night or when I am working... Ohh well.

thats a good spot to give you a heads up in case of taking on water.
