i have to preface this question by saying, I'm new at this whole boating thing but...

i just got back from mexico and i used the fake a lake to flush out the boat and it's not very convenient. so my question is, what is everybody using to flush out the boat? thanks in advance for the help.

I don't use anything. Boat only in fresh wah-wah, occasionally clean the strainers and drain the block.
.
It would be wise to not boat in salt water, esp. w/o a fresh water cooling system.

thanks b,

technically, the place i was at in mexico is "fresh water" :lol: (i use that term very loosely) i'm told it is brackish, so i want to be sure i do the right thing.

I use the fake-a-lake about every 3 or 4 outings. My home tap water is no better than the lake water so not really sure what I am helping.

Joe,
I feel your pain. Everytime we travel to Florida our family refers to what comes out of the tap as 'Florida Swamp Water'. It's like drinking the water that condenses off a very old window air conditioner...

Hope you are still on the water.

blue, i cannot stand fake a lake. found it to hard to get a good seal.

the flush pro works much better.

now i will apologize for ed and sd2, for their random comments.

ps, ed

i really need to get down to the jamboree and see this.

Hey, hey!

I didn't even comment on the whole fake a lake thing. Heck that's what I ride on.

Flush kit? Sounds like a mess to me.

NOW you can apologize for me as I have now added a nonhelpful comment.

Which is not exactly different from most.

Perko flush kit is the way to go, get a quick connect for your garden hose and it makes it even easier. The best part is you can use it while your boat is in the water, I ride in salt and flush with a perko every time I return to my dock.
