Extra bow bag on top of seats a-22


Recommended Posts

I am looking at buying another bag to throw on top of the seats for a 2020 a-22. I was curious if anyone has ever installed one using the factory pump and plumbing so that the stock bow bag below the seats overflows into the new bag on top of the seats. Ideally I would add in some ball valves and quick disconnects so that I could remove the bag easily and store it in a rear locker when not in use. Is this a possibility or is it just easier to get a pump to throw overboard and not have it integrated? Thanks!

with enough money, anything is possible.  Im using the FATSAC Tusnami pump to fill my cushion top triangle.  Its stupid simple and fills/drains super fast.  And i dont have to worry about hiding any hoses when not being used.

It won't work.  Too much head pressure or something?

the "best" way to do it would be a reversible pump with a thru hull in the bottom of the boat that you can use to fill and drain the seat top bag.

Or just get 400lbs of lead, which is much smaller, doesn't require you to drill a hole in the boat or do any wiring, and doesn't consume the whole bow when in use.  I did the reversible pump on my boat and now just use the lead.  Haven't even flipped the switch on the reversible pump in two years.
