    Default LSV Ballast Upgrade W/Auxilary Fill Ports

    I am about 95% complete with my ballast upgrade. The upgrade included building a new manifold, 1" Irritrol

    straight flow valves, Rule 3800 GPH pump, relays to re-locate the power from the dash to the starter feed, a new

    ballast switch to fill and empty, Tsunami 800 GPH to empty and a ton of wire. I wanted to add an auxilary port to

    fill the extra bag that we can use for extra ballast or for surfing. I got tired of the cigarette lighter and

    wires being strung across the boat. This took me about 3 months to complete due to the limited space in my 2002

    LSV.


    Here is the old a new scupper followed my new manifold.

    The small hole I cut with a drill and dremel. The large hole was already there from my GIII system from the

    factory. I added the three relay bank to supply power to the fill pump and the new evac pump directly from the

    starter instead of being powered through the switches.

    Here is the 3800 installed super tight, the floor is out in this pic due to replacing the steering cable...again.

    Also the Auxilary fill ports with and without being connected.

    Here is the evac pump for the auxilary fill. The second pic is the one way valve T I used to tap into the bilge

    line to go through the hull. I am using all four evac ports and just tapped into the bilge with one way valves

    since the bilge is not used that often. The third pic is the starboard side bag with its new 1" connection for

    quicker fill times.

    I filled the auxilary bag with air to show about how I will use it. One pic is in the wakeboard use and the other

    is in the surf use.

    I figured the cup holder on that side could go, we are all regular footed and no one ever sits on that side anyway. That is our throw all the crap in the boat corner. I can not wait to get it on the water to test all of it.

    jesse, just thought of something, its possible your bag on the seat will drain down to the level of the drain hole on the side of the boat, you may need a valve of some kind to block the water off as the tsunami pump will not hold any water back.

    Does that make sence?

    How did you get the original scupper out of the boat?, I tried on mine and that thing will not budge, yes i did remove the 4 screws and the big nut on the inside.
