DIY fake a lake
So I didnt feel like ordering a fake a lake kit so i decide to make my own. Went to lowes and got a toliet plundger and hose adapter. I am going to cut a wood pole to lenght to prop it up under the boat.
Yep that's just about what mine looks like. 3yrs and still goin' strong.
yep, mine too! About $6 in parts! used it last weekend! Although, I did have ot put a 2x 4 under it to get it snug.. i guess that is what I lose by not spending $45
Next time your using your Fake a Lake can you take pic's of how well it fits.
Sure, the nice thing I like is that I can put the plunger over the PU on the boat then position the handle anywhere I need to get good pressure. On my boat the handle sits tight on the driveway between the bunks on the trailer and I can just raise or lower the trailer jack to get a good seal.
You're in luck.. I was out piddlin with the boat.. Had 2 issues yesterday..
Center front ballast would not drain and I had some leakage at the water pump..
Just used the fake a lake to fix both!
Ballast was clogged hose.. full of straw.. thanks to a bug or VERY small bird..
Leakage was loose hose on water pump..
Anyway.. here is a pic of the fake a lake..
That was fast. Thank you.

Awwww, B-Webb you're making me jealous!
My daughter had a gymnastics meet this weekend so no lake time. Can't compain too much as I bought the boat for my kids - least that's what I tell them & the wife! :p It was 80 and sunny at the lake today and I can hardly wait to get back out there.
yeah, nice weekend.
Sat was nice.. but windy, but we found some decent water.
dry suit was near warm.
One gal rode a shorty was fine. I think it will be wetsuits from now til warmer times.
Did I tell you suck? :)
Wife called me today and said she won't let anyone cross the ice anymore. In fact she just called me to say the drywaller tried to cross and fell through. On the bright side that means open water soon.
