Timewarp .. I was wondering what an 'elbow' was sounded a little strange (in a NON-descriptive type way). I don't have a Formula or siphon break to worry about, but at least I'll now know what an elbow is if I come across one.

Ron & Sharkey, I called proroc this morn and they have no product available,, yet ... they said it's coming. No filtration or bilge plug devices. They did offer to whip something (custom) up for me, if I wanted, in a 2 week time frame.

I'll pass, but keep my eyes on proroc website for future release.

Ange did you make that call lol

While sitting in dry dock, they have a unit that will screw into your drain plug hole. This way, any water that drains from the bilge will get filtered prior to hitting the ground. Any boat that is stored on their premises indeed gets one. Prevents the larger headaches later if the property were to become contaminated.....
I didn't see the product on their site. I keep my boat on a life and keep the drain plug out, I could sure use one of these.

Maybe...

Here is a little more of a description:

The filter goes inline between the bilge pump and the hull outlet. It is filled with a media that will absorb up to 2 gallons of oil, transmission fluid and fuel. At the end of the boating season, you can take the filter out and screw it directly into your drain plug hole. This will allow rainwater to be filtered prior to hitting the ground.
The Bilge Filter will be available from Proroc for $79.00

I guess you made a call. lol

Sounds like a double winner. My driveway has this odd looking stain in one spot, it's even starting to 'eat away' at the pavement ... coincidently, right where the transom of my boats have been
