Damn Steve, that is a serious fish killer. Only 20 trips to OEX? Thanks for taking the time to post all your innovations, you have a very well thought out kayak and have given me lots of great ideas.

Very nice, even if it is in a HOBIE. Very clean work and lots of good ideas. Do you have an anti-backflow in your pump setup?

I just put the battery box in the front hatch. It stays where it should.

Since I don't know what that is, I'll say no. The pump is mounted below the waterline, so that it self primes though.

With the inlet at the bottom, like the Hobie tanks, when the pump stops the water is siphoned back out unless checked.

Thanks. I will look at west marine for those clips. Now that I think of it I got some paddle clips like that at west marine for another boat I had. Only smaller. I'll see if they have the larger clips. Again thanks.

Wow...

Someone has a lot of spare time on their hands. Or, should be doing kayak installation for a living!

Nice work, Steve. That skinny boat looks ready for battle. Way too damn clean if you asked me, though.

Here's to your next happy paddle...and a deck that resembles a horror flick more than a showroom floor.

Beautiful job and lots of great ideas. I particularly like the goop method of joining wires.

As all of us with bait tanks which use a pump mounted below the waterline of the tank know, water will drain out when the pump is turned off. There are several ways to deal with this. You an install a back flow valve like the one that Greg mentioned but those can sometimes foul with kelp.

An easier and more foolproof way to solve the problem is to put an "ell" fitting where the water enters your tank and attach a vertical piece of pipe that extends up to the desired waterline. If you use a threaded ell you can angle the water input pipe to allow it to drain.

You can see how this is done on a Hobie tank by going to post #36 in the Innovations tread.
