I can't speak to switchover as that boat never saw a goofy wave in the 5years I owned it. around the same time for the single rule pump to drain the 1100bag as well.
    My '02 Moomba has the same setup, one fill pump with three dump pumps all aerators.

    Definitely not as fast as my newer setup with five reversibles, but on the Moomba, I just added the bigger bags and as Sandm said, gives more time to let the stereo run and maybe enjoy a cold one ("ONE?!" I just heard my wife scream...)

    With the five reversibles, I had to also add a new under dash dc distribution panel with a new main circuit breaker (80A?). Works real nice, but I did dump some money into it and ruined a nice weekend before I installed it. Popped a fuse (well hidden) and didn't have pumps or stereo as the WS 420 was ran off the same block.

    Perfect pass is a must!

    You can buy the larger bags (1100), an IBS, a few extra bags to move around and use several tsunami pumps to fill them quicker. I did this my first year until I installed a complete reversible system.

    You can find used 750s around..

    I agree, PP is a "MUST"


    Are there any other must-have modification projects that should be on my short-list?
    There are many stupid long lists on this forum (the lists aren't stupid, the length of the list is). Start with a full blown stereo system...Hours of fun listening to how Exile, Wetsounds, Kicker or (fill in the blank) is better.

    Don't forget you will NEED LEDs! (preferably RGBs) and don't look at Berg's thread on his new interior, it is awesome!

    But most of all, have fun! Spend money in the off-season and check your prop - Get a new (or used) one now if you still have the 537 or whatever came stock. (there's even a 1617 in the classified section here!)

    definitely go with the 1100 for the rear, you might want to get a portable tsunami pump and use it to help speed everything up.

    I was planning on upgrading the the rears on my 13 OBV with 750#. Simple plug and play upgrade there. I was wonder if it would be possible to slide the 400's under the bow seat one on each side forming a V.

    I know I won't get them full. It would be cheaper then buying an IBS.

    I figure the the rear sac (50x16x16) is only 2" shorter than the IBS arms (52x12x12) and I would lose a little bit under the front seat. But at the end of the day they will both only fill so much no matter how big.

    Also, for those that run the IBS how much weight are you getting up there and do u still run the center 400#?

    I tried the two 400's in the bow of my obv07 , much happier with the ibs, but the 400's it will work and will pop the front seats.
