Zodiac Yachtline fuel overspill catch

Anybody ever experience a problem with their fuel overspill catch not draining? I'd like to not take the boat out of the water, but I can't figure out where this drains too. Bilge working fine but can't get this area to drain properly. Doesn't seem like anything is blocking it. I'd rather know where it drains to before I start trying other ideas. Anybody experience this issue before?

Generally they exit in the motorwell area. With such a long run it is possible that there is a kink in the hose.

Stick the foot pump hose it the hole and pump air.

If you hear gurgling, you've got a liquid blockage in the line. Either a kink or droop.

Thanks guys. Foot pumped worked, Just had a blockage. Still learning about everything. Glad I decided to go with a dinghy first to learn! That blockage caused the fuel catch to fill, had a minor seal issue on the fuel tank and got about a half a gallon of water in the tank. Had to pump it all it out. New filters and plugs.. (hopefully you can't over treat the fuel with stabilizer). Least you learn a little more each time there's an issue.

New cushions, new stainless steel wheel, looking brand new. Pictures to come.

What year is the OP's boat?

I have a '98 Zodiac Yachtline, my fuel overflow won't let water into the fuel tank. It dumps the overflow down tube to the transom..outside.

Yes the foot pump trick should work on the Projet.
