    Bailor tubes

    Do I need the 90* fitting in the bailor tubes, looks like I have enough hose to connect straight to the pump.

    I was chastised for asking this same question a while back....

    The overiding answer was leave the 90s in place tied up so that:
    1. they create a dam from water re-entering the hull
    2. there's small breather holes in the 90s

    leave them...

    get a bilge and hook it directly to the battery with a fuse and a switch and ditch the goodfornothing bailer tubes that are ALWAYS in the farking way.

    Yes, if you keep them.

    I had to reroute the bailor tube around the intercooler water lines and the groco strainer. Tomorrow is test for the external intercooler, all the clamps are tight, and I only have one spot that could leak and that is at the SC outlet.

    I would like to put a bilge pump in, but I did not get around to it over the winter.

    bailer tubes

    It is perfectly safe to remove the bailer tubes. Just pull the pump out and put two pennies (Reid) in the two holes and silicone over them. I then put caps on the inside nozzles behind the VTS to be safe. Pull those suckers out. Use the metal peice that secures the strainer to the hull to clamp your bilge to. No more bailer tubes that really don't do shit and if they do you have to be at a good speed. I test my bilge before riding.
