Flush Kit Installed
I have been running in brackish water so I installed a flush kit. It was very easy. I thought I would share a couple pictures with the board.
Install Time: 15 Minutes
Nicely done! This will be great reference for others that want to do this install.
Where did you buy it at? Have you tested it out yet? If so how well does it work?
I've only used it once and it worked well. I'll be using it again on Saturday.

Does this cause the impeller to burn out? This looks like it by passes the impeller. I can't tell from the picture, maybe you installed it just after the strainer up from the raw water intake and it still has to go through the impeller? Any help would be appreciated.
He has it installed right after the raw water intake. From there it goes thru the vdrive and on to the water pump, so no impeller issues.

Update: I have used this 3 times now and it works great. Turn the water on, check for hose kinks, then fire the boat up. It's simple and and works well.
