Fish & bait pump out


Recommended Posts

We recently purchased a 1999 Baha Cruisers Weekender 313 and looking for advice on the fish wells. I noticed the fish and bait wells are dumping into the bottom of the boat and being bilged out. There is a hose laying in the bottom that goes to a thru hull port. I tried it but the angle is not good enough to drain well.

Any owners out there do something creative? I do not like the idea of stinking up the bottom of the boat and working the bilge.

I'm also looking for a boat manual if any baha owners might have one. I have the one for the sea max engines.

I cannot tell you exactly how mine is set up, but I have a proline with two large in floor fish boxes. They are both connected to a macerator pump mounted in front of the engine in the bilge.This slowly pumps down all the nasty fish slime and wash water to a side discharge with I think a check ball. Kinda like a scupper drain. I have looked into this pump cost and they are not cheep. Mine boat is a 1995 and the pump is still a working ariginal. I will replace the hoses when I get the chance to thourgh Yours may have had one and then it was not replaced if it went bad.

Thank you Eco for the reply.

I think i am going to change around the drain houses first to see if i can get a better flow. IF this does not work, i am going to install the Fish Box Evacuator pump from Jabsco.

I like the flexibility of mounting and I'm concerned about the macarator pump reliability.
