Ballast issues

Recommended Posts

Guys, I just put my boat in the water for the first time since having it winterized last fall. The ballast in the left rear and in the front won’t fill. The pumps work but as soon as they begin pumping in water, the auto bilge immediately turns on. Common sense says a hose is not connected and filling the boat instead of the ballast but the connections look fine. Also, the other two fill and work fine. Any ideas?

Have you tried to fill each one individually and watch to see which one is causing this? If your filling your engine bay up with water you definitely have a loose connection or a hole somewhere.
