Flush muff's for Yam 115

When I bought the searider Mike told me that he had no success finding flush muffs that would suit the Yamaha 115. Instead a large tank has to be used. I know MikeCC knows his stuff so I'm not holding out much hope on anyone knowing....Is there any kind of flushing system out there that I can use instead of a tank?

When I had it on a mooring I pulled it out each time to flush then put it back in again. Kind of defeats the ease of having it on a mooring. Going on to it's new mooring at the start of June so trying to find something soon as.

Yeah this photo was taken just after I pulled it out. Horrible bloody place it was too.
At least the new place doesn't dry out.

same probleam so we purchased a stanard muffs
then drilled out the blank hole opp to where the hose fits in
a couple of conectors to link them so water flows both sides
and then we cut a donut shape from some old rubber we had and glued it to the the muffs this stops most of the water escaping and a much better fit
not as big a job as its sounds

Thanks Roy, I think I remember Mike saying that it didn't work with any flush muffs (which I take it meant double too) and him saying it needed water above the anti cav plate?

why would these not work? as long as the two water inlets are covered and the water is flowing then they should work.

I think you can turn the two rectangular cups 90degrees so that they would fit yours better

I don't understand why normal muffs won't work. Your water intakes look no different to mine, and flush muffs worked perfectly well on mine. RickUK3 hasn't mentioned any problems using muffs on his old Yam 115 either...

Lads, I've got it wrong (again ) Mike didn't say anything like I thought. Must have cooked itself up in my head on the pro plus drive home.
He doesn't like using flush muffs so got the tub plus remembers reading it was best to flush in a tank so took that route.

I'm gutted though! Amount of times I've struggled to get it out of the water to flush it
