  1. So I finished installing and plumbing a secondary pump in my 21 H2O and it turned out pretty easy project. Before: Located and drilled the hole Prepped the parts Installed and sealed the thru-hull fitting The rest was done next day to allow adhesive to cure. Connected the hose to the fitting and routed it to the bilge pump location Installed a little starboard platform right next to the the one from the factory and mounted the pump with Ultra Safety System switch. The rule float switch on the right is not mine, it's from the factory Finished by running the wires to the battery distribution panel for always hot and to the helm for manual operation.
  2. I was psyched to get the boat in the water tomorrow. I had the 300 hour work done this year on my 2011 246 SSi with Merc so i was hoping for a relatively problem free year. I brought boat home today, put a nice fresh coat of 303 on the covers, put all the stuff where it needs to go and went through checklist. I put water in the bilge - no bilge pump - either by float or switch. Checked circuit breakers. No noise or anything. How is one supposed to get at that? Thanks for any suggestions! Jim

    Bilge Pump

    Thank you in advance to whomever answers. I just purchased a 2005 204 SSI with only 84 hours on it. Boat is in great condition. I test drove it two weeks ago and ran great. Took it out this past Sunday with no problems. However on Monday I towed it to the highway patrol to have trailer inspected so that I can license it. As I backed it in driveway and getting ready to go inside I hear something running. It didn't take me long to figure out it was the bilge. I have a switch on the dash that I knew was off but double checked and sure enough it was in the off position but was lit up red indicating it was on. I flipped it to the actual on position and it stayed red and continued to run. What could be causing this now constant power to the switch to keep it running? There is no water in the boat at all. I had to disconnect battery cables to get it off. Any suggestions?

    Bilge Cleaning / Bilge Pump

    I have a 2010 Chaparral Sunesta 284. I want to clean the engine area with bilge cleaner and water. How do I temporarily turn off the auto bilge pump so that the cleaner and water can remain in the bilge area while the boat is in use?

    Replacement Bilge Pump

    I scoured the feed for anything regarding replacement bilge pumps. Hence the new feed. The integrated float switch has failed on mine and am looking to replace the pump with as much or more GPM that I currently have (1000). It was enough to not only keep up with a boat launched without its drain plug, but was actually lowering the water in the bilge. My question is on best brands you may have experience with. I can't get a read on what brand is preferred.
  6. I have a '07 190 SSI I just bought last week. During the test run I checked the bilge and I heard it come on. This past weekend we got caught in one of those afternoon thunder showers and the boat got a little water in it. I flipped the bilge switch and nothing happened. I noticed that the light wasn't on the switch so I reset the breaker. Still nothing. First question, where is this thing located? I can't find it anywhere and I suppose it's behind the motor. Has anyone changed it and if so how? Pics would be nice. I'm sure there are some wires exposed since the breaker keeps tripping. Any info is appreciated!!

  8. Hello Gents, I have a little problem with my '99 1930 SS's bilge pump. It is running continously but not pumping any water. The float switch is fine. There is an inch or two of water in the bilge and lifting the float switch up thereby allowing the pump to run. The pump is simply not pumping any water. I'm wondering - can the pump lose it's prime? Have the seals dried out? Has the impellor broken? (I do hear a very slight grinding noise like particles of sand or the like is being circulated. Could I perhaps prime it by pouring water down into the hull outlet fitting if it has lost it's prime? Any ideas? Maybe time for a new pump....lol Thanks, Dave in NH
  9. Just bought an '04 220 SSI. I just got a new cover, but after a lot of rain the day after I got it, there was a fair amount of water in the engine compartment. I'm obviously working with the vendor who did the top to figure out why so much water came in (thru the vents I think), but it made me wonder if I should always leave the bilge switch on (that's on the cockpit panel) when the boat is docked in a slip on the lake. Our bilge pump is obviously not wired directly to the battery, but I am just wondering if leaving it one should just be "standard operating procedure" for us after docking. Any suggestions are appreciated. Owned a runabout before, but it's been awhile. VERY happy to be a boat owner again, but need to learn a few things again...
