    Default 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.

    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.

    Jester..
    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..
