    Access to bilge pump????

    I am trying to find the bilge pump in order to clear the lines for winterization? I don't remember doing this step last winter?

    Can anybody tell me it's location and what to remove to get to it? Is it even necessairy? I don't want to cause any damage if it a must I will do it?

    There is no "active" bilge pump.
    Its a vacum system of 2 hoses.The faster you go the more they suck out.Follow the 2 lines that end at you pump exit nozzle.2center ones.
    No need to clear anything IMO...
    Get a manual it will help you a lot.

    Yah, they say to flush out the bilge hoses, They siphon drain out the back of the ski and I haven't seen any water collect in them.

    Your suppose to check the Breather's at the top as well to make sure there free of debris. If the Breathers get clogged and the Engine is Idle or stops you compartment can flood, Bad by product of a full proof system.

    wot are you talking about?? wot breathers???????

    the hose go from the nozzle,thru the hull, to up under the heighest part of the rear seat section beside the hull vent tubes, then back down to the bottom of the bilge.

    They are designed this way as water doesnt run up hill very well.
    So u cant flood the ski when stopped.

    Where are you looking to see the breather's????????

    Check out Diagram in Service manual 9-15 , You can see both there, It's part of the 25 hour. I saw somewhere that it could flood if clogged. Kind of like a syphon.

    Yes, That's what I'm talking about, If blocked, Is it possible for it to flood, I know I read that some where so It's on my list of thing's to do on my 25 hour. You can see the elbow's on the diagram.

    bilge pump

    BILGE PUMPS SUCK ! All you have to check for is the little vent hole at the top elbows (if their not clear water can backsiphon and fill the ski). DON'T enlarge the holes ! Use a toothpick to clear if necessary.
