Re: Bilge exit

It's not where they come out of the boat, it's what comes out of the bilge. There are laws about oily discharge, sheen on the water, etc.

Re: Bilge exit

Best exit location is where you have enough height to install an anti siphon loop

Re: Bilge exit

You have to use red hose on the port side and green hose on the starboard side.

Re: Bilge exit

Exit thru hull above the heeled over waterline. And you need to run a loop of hose above the thru hull or you will fill the bilge from water entering in

I hope you really mean "vented loops".

Just to add another choice;it should exit as low as possible on the boat near the center line. This does mean another thru hull but it will always be lower than the water level despite the boats attitude.
Before you flame this to oblivion, it's a pretty old school way of doing things..
