Here's what happens when you don't have your bag aligned properly. I heard a hissing noise and caught the leak before it filled the boat. After use, I generally lift the bags up so they completely drain and I guess I didn't ensure they were laid flat again, The force of the 750 lbs against a misaligned bag just snapped the fitting.

That's what bilge pumps are for.

At least its a cheap fix!!

Wow! Never seen that. I guess it pays to be vigilant when filling and emptying. Thanks for sharing this!
