    adding bilge siphons

    How come the 150 Speedster doesn't come with bilge vacuum siphons like the PWCs have? I don't understand why the sport boats don't have this in addition to the electric bilge pump. Has anyone here added this to their jet boat?

    My 04 had them, but not my 06. The pump support had the holes for them, so I drilled them out through the glass and epoxied brass barbs inside the hull. Worked great and gave me peace of mind having them plus a bilge pump.

    I haven't taken my Speedster pump apart yet, is the pump housing drilled for this and does the venturi nozzle need to be modified?

    On the 06 the pump support and venturi were already drilled for the siphon tubes. Not sure about newer years. There were just no holes in the hull to match. Just sealant between hull and pump support.

    I'd like it if the pump support will accommodate the OEM hose barbs.
