Does anyone know what's involved in plumbing up my livewell so that I can pump water out the side hole where the bilge pumps water out? This would make filling my weigh bag a lot easier. I have a 1998 Skeeter ZX185C.

Thanks

No idea what system you currently have but I'd check out the flow rite website for pump out system options. I need to do it myself.

 

I'm thinking you'd have to add some valving to utilize/redirect a recirc pump to pump out. 

 

Ive been meaning to do this for a couple years. It sucks crawling up under the outboard to drain the livewell water into a weigh in bag.

Thanks for the information. I wonder with my current setup since I already have Aerator and Bilge pumps, would I just need the Flow Rite V5 Pump Out Valve? Any ideas?

Whatever you decide, you should keep your bilge pump on its own dedicated circuitry, not interconnected with your live well.   Put another through hull fitting of the same brand as the one for your bilge pump for appearance sake.  Put it alongside your bilge pump outlet.
