Upgrading to gps speedo, what do to with pitot tube?

Recommended Posts

Lanman

What should I do with the tube from pickup to gauge? If I simply disconnect, will water come up the tube?

There might be some water in it,, but if you don't cap it off,, water will shoot out of it while your driving.

Ok, that’s what I was wondering. Options for capping it?

I removed my tubes and sealed the holes in the hull with a dab of marine Tex

I sealed up the three mounting holes for the Pitot.  For the area where the tube enters into the hull, I installed underwater lights there and use the hole to feed the wire through.  Perfect place for them.

I guess I'm an underachiever.  I left everything in place and just flipped the pitots up so they are not in the water flow.
