The number of pumps is important from the stand point that bilge pumps are not reliable because they are electrical devices submerged in water. Contrary to common belief, the pumps themselves rarely fail; its the electrical system from which they operate that is usually the cause of the failure. Because of this, one way to improve reliability is with redundancy, or increasing the number of pumps to decrease the odds of complete loss of pumping ability.

Added to the equation is the fact that the pumps are only as good as the battery system supplying power to them. There’s not much point in having a good pumping system if the battery system is not up to running them for the necessary period of time.

The main idea came from reading a variety of forums, old Mother Earth News articles, and checking out some old newsgroups. It seemed that others had had some success creating solar heaters in a variery of methods, from something as complex as a custom built metal heat exchanger to something as simple as a bale of irrigation hose sitting on a slope.

I decided to aim somewhat inbetween these extremes and came up with a solar “panel” consisting of a 4’x4′ plywood sheet on a frame with as much irrigation hose as I could coil onto the surface I’ve added a diagram to show the piping clearly, and added a bit more description at the end of the article The whole thing is propped up with legs at more-or-less the optimal angle for my location, and pointing more-or-less south.

The inside of the frame was painted flat black, and the copper pipe brackets were painted flat black as well, after the thing was together. I put it on patio bricks this year to make it easier to mow around Click any of the small images for a full size in a new window. Side View Here is the ‘T’ off the pump. This is after the chlorinator, to hopefully keep the nastiness build-up in the hose away. I also added a ball valve in the line, which is super helpful in keeping the flow through the heater to a trickle.

This allows the water to get hotter in the pipe, and maintain some thermal mass. Note the lovely collapsible legs for easy winter storage

By Kevin Falvey posted Apr 14th, at 8: For instance, smoothbore hose costs more but makes better use of pump power than corrugated hose. And the redundant safety provided by multiple pumps is hard to beat. Mount the pump Boating Magazine 1.

You may need to build or buy a shelf or bulkhead-mount bracket. Install the switches Boating Magazine 2.

Apr 09,  · Re: Best way to attach tow/ski line? Those kind of fittings, (that boomyal showed are great) I find that the best way to attach the rope is go feed the splice in the rope under the eyelet, and then go up and over the center hook, this provides more even wear on the rope and doesn’t let the rope fall when there is slack in the line.

On board the Cornelia Marie, last season’s greenhorn, Jake Harris, got a promotion to deckhand; the vessel’s new greenhorn is Joshua Harris, Jake’s older brother and Phil’s eldest son. The Maverick is now under Blake Painter’s control, and his crew is virtually all friends of his who are King-crab greenhorns, with only one experienced deck hand acting as Deck Boss. At the pre-season captains’ dinner, Johnathan Hillstrand proposed a derby-style competition between the boats: Fewest number of pots needed to pull , pounds of crab.

How bad is it to boat without a working bilge pump? Replacing a bilge pump is simple. Make sure it’s getting power with a multi meter or just buy a new one and hook up the wires just like the old one. Have you checked both? Is the boat kept on a trailer or in a slip. If in a slip a heavy rain could sink it without the pump. Is it bad.

The exact number is not known because there is no agency that keeps statistics. But just ask any marine insurance company and they will tell you that the number is far too high. In fact, sinking is the number one cause of major marine losses, and one of the primary reasons why marine insurance costs so much. This is a subject that most boat owners would probably dismiss as irrelevant. After all, you may reason, boats don’t sink very often wrong and that’s usually because some fool didn’t maintain his.

If you tend to think this way, I suggest that you read a little further.
