Robert,
John and John installed the one I have in my Velocity now, so I think we can duplicate that one with your Manifold too. When are you going to the Keys again?

Robert is right, that is the best system.

In our rig we have that to attach the hose and a pull lever shut-offs (look at bottom left of the picture) to shut the external water pick-ups to rinse your engines even when your staying in saltwater overnight. All boats from Lip-Ship come with that.

GLH,
That's a neat set-up on the Cigs, but what I was talking about was where you hook the hose to the flush. On yours, you have to undo the hose to change engines, mine you just have to switch the valves. Not trying to be offensive, just making clear what I was talking about. I DO wish I could set up my raw water intale shut offs like yours, but I don't have enough room where the valves are.

It was nice meeting you in KW.

Robert

DF,

I went with two of these:

and two of these:

I may try the routing them to one input. That is a cool Idea.

For as often as I will spend the night in SW and have the opportunity to flush the engines, I will just stick a couple pieces of waterproof duct tape over the intakes. Just gotta remember to take it off in the morning.

A little more tweaked but the same logic and result.
The shut off part is choice, beiing in fresh water I don't need it but in FL it's nice to have.

Same here nice meeting you, Nice Ride your pushing around!!!

Where's WW1/JD been?
