Plumbing baitwell at sealevel

3 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I have a 27" Ocean Master that I've owned for 2 years. I love the boat but one thing is bothering me. The baitwell is in the aft deck and when the boat is 3/4- full of fuel the lid to the baitwell is at sealevel/ waterline. I want to plumb the baitwell this Spring but I don't want to drill any holes in the transom for overflow discharge untill I'm absolutley positive that the plumbing design is going to work.

The question I have stewed over for two years is this. If the 1.5" discharge is at the waterline whats gonna stop the seawater from coming into the baitwell. I'm thinking nothing will stop it and that will overflow the well and leak out onto the deck.

Any suggestions or past experience with this type of baitwell.

Any help is appreciated

If the baitwell top is at sea level you will not be able to install an overflow above that level.  The only other option would be to install another storage tank below that and plump it with a pumb to empty.
