Default Is there muffs for the Bravo One that sucks from the botton of the lower unit?

It must be the new style but was curious if they make muffs or a way to hook water up to this lower unit?

yes they make one for the HP low water pick up. You probably wont be able to get them at any local places though.

or you can get one of those 30 gallon plastic totes and put it under the lower and fill it and leave the hose in the tote so it can suck the water..nice part about doing it this way is you know it your impeller is working..

Those muffs look like they would suck any unit...

+1 I bought the Merc low-water pick-up pictured above and was not impressed. I then bought a 55 gal plastic drum off Craigslist, cut it down to the right height and it works much better. I was surprised, though, that it took two hoses to keep the drum full when she was running.

A buddy of mine uses some industrial strength tape to just tape the hose directly to the lower unit. Save your money on the Merc thing and get creative....
