    Default More MODS to the OBV

    This MOD is still in the works but was talked about a little while back. I am not done yet due to waiting on some parts.
    I am adding 2 ballast bags under the rear side seats. I added 2 new water pick ups and 2 new vents. The bags willhave dedicated reversible pumps.
    I will post up more pics as we go but these should get you started.

    Factory switch panel and 12v acc removed



    template of new cut out needed to accomidate new panel



    New panel installed and 12v acc port moved up

    Todd, those reversable pumps, they just pump the water back out the the thru hull that they pulled it i from? what keeps the bags from filling up due to water jetting up thru the thru hull, pump, and into the bag while underway?

    The design of the thru hullmostly. When underway the thru hull is not under major pressure because of the angle that the water hits it. Also the pumps have an impeller that is almost impossible to force water thru with the amount of pressure coming from the thru hull.

    And yes the pumps use the thru hull for supply and return. the ones in the side of the boat are vent / overfill.

    is that due to the pumping being different than the stock ones as well as the new thru hulls being different? i know if i leave my sprinkler valves in the stuck open position and drive the bags will get water in them. not full but a good amount

    I doubt he made it.

    I assume this panel can be ordered from the dealer because it is included on the Gravity Games Moomba/Supra boats.

    That panel is not available on ANY boat. The boats deafgoose mentioned have the GIII ballast and switch panel. I had it in my boat and took it out. I still have it if anybody needs it.

    I designed it and had a local fab shop make it for me to my design and specs.
