  • Fast fill ballast

    When I first got the boat the ballast storage area was very dry and I never noticed water dripping from the pumps. I now notice some water on the bags and it looks like there is a steady stream of water coming from the ballast pump into the storage area onto the bag. Is this normal?

    i tried to post a picture to show the water.

    I’m guessing that’s not normal! Cracked fitting? Looks like it’s coming from the 90.

      Not normal. Looks like freeze damage from incomplete winterization of the ballast system cracked the fitting.

        Thanks! Just what I thought def not normal. It’s a 2022. Hasn’t seen winter yet. But it had a bulletin that was repaired and MC recommended to long of hose for the drainage port which then kinked and put a lot of pressure on the pump and I think that damaged the pump. MC then updated the bulletin with shorter length for drainage hose.
