    Quick Report:
    Launched at 0630 with a dead boat. Had to pull the boat back out and jump it off the truck (just my luck right).We got it going and hit the water. As soon as we hit the grounds bait was pushing to the surface, first cast CRANK CRANK CRANK my buddys bit. 7 mins later it hits the deck... Big Homeguard. Any skippers had any problems with their bait tanks losing flow above 10 knots? I cant seem to keep bait alive once i get up on plane. Any advice is welcome. Thanks for reading:

    Nice report. Hard to believe it's December.

    Where is your bait tank pick up located?

    Thru hull or a pump that sits below the waterline?

    My guess is either the scoop/screen is backwards or not installed.

    As the boat comes onto a plane it becomes hard for it to pump water through a standard 1" or 1 1/2" round hole. The water is rushing by too quickly.

    If the scoop is installed backwards (with screen facing aft) it will not allow water to flow up because the solid part facing forward is blocking water intake.

    The reason I am thinking the scoop is backwards is because even if the pump failed you may still be able (albeit greatly reduced) to have flow because of the water bring scooped and forced up through the pump.

    like this? if yes these have to be put the correct direction. backwards and it will siphon water out of the tank.

    I would venture to say that is probably your culprit. Has this always happened since you got the boat or is it something new?

    In theory from the description above, it only happens when you are getting up to speed, which generally means you have good 12 volt via the alternator which will keep the batteries topped off and the scoop provides a boost in pressure which allows the pump to "work less".

    And you correct about siphoning the tank, if solid part is facing forward it will create an air pocket in screen which would allow the water to siphon out.

    EDIT: So if your screen is installed to side, it might not be enough to cause the air pocket which would allow the siphon but it may create enough cavitation to not allow the pump to have an ample source of clean water to draw from.

    Nice job Capt. Start with the basics, then work out from there. I was thinking way past the obvious.

    Nothing like having to drill more holes in your hull. :eek:
