I just got this new Boat vac. I also got the new retracting tie downs. I get some pics once there installed, i bought 3 of them. 2 for the rear and a bow strap also.


This vac is realy sweet though. Plugs right into the 12V its small enough to take on board realy easy, water safe, and makes cleaning the boat a real ease now since i dont have to set my large shop vac on a table and threw the huge hose inside lol.

I use a small 2.5 gallon Sears shop vac in the boat at home and then when out on the water and camping we have a cordless ReadiVac always with us in the boat, one charge will last all week easy.

let me know how the suctions is on tha vac mike. i placed an order for that bow tie down after i seen that article of the boat accident in texas and was looking at the vac too but didn't know how good it would be. i like the idea of using it to inflate and deflate the tubes as well so keep me posted when ya get it please

I had one of those vacs for years and found it to be a lot of noise and not much suc. I just read the 4 reviews on the Overtons website. They pretty much confirm my experience, save your money and get something like Razzman shows or a B&D dustbuster.

I caught your humor LOL.

I tested the new vac today on my truck lol. It does what i expected, yea its a little noisy but its just a plastic container and a small motor on top. All the accessories fit inside the vac.

It no way works as well as my large shop vac in the garage but for quick easy clean ups it works great. Just as i hoped and im happy with it for now.
