I tried a little experiment yesterday-I ran up the Yam on the Searider to dewinterise it using a 25 litre container with a hozelock fitting and the muffs.
I only intended to get water into the impeller to stop it being damaged while I ran it for a few seconds. However, the results were far better than I expected.
The muffs were strapped on tightly to prevent leakage and the impeller sucked the water out of the drum far faster than normal gravity feed (probably not a good idea to use too flexible a hose for it or it'll be sucked flat).
It was peeing like normal and I ended up running it 'til the container got close to empty.
It's rather handy as I can now flush the motor anywhere I can fill a container.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
