What bag for the bow?

Recommended Posts

dm001681

So, I'm piggy backing two 750lbs bags in the lockers of my 2012 23LSV but I need some weight in the bow. I'd really like to avoid using an external pump over the side. So, I'm wondering what other guys have done to easily fill a bag for the bow. I'm envisioning some sort of setup where the bow bag only comes out of storage when I want to use it but can connect to a pump that is somehow plummed in so all I have to do is connect a hose and click a switch.

How are you guys doing it?

Reversible impeller pump run , your hose up the side of bow and pull it out and connect to bag when you want to fill.

Wheelman, thanks. I've seen that done and I like that idea. Does that mean I need another thru hull? I've heard that the reversible pumps burn out if you accidentally leave then on after the bag is empty, any truth to that?

I used the ski locker drain instead of another thru hull.

If you leave it on for a long time empty it will burn out. 2-3 minutes shouldnt hurt it much. Only thing it burns out is the impeller not the motor.
