something ive never done and never seen in the flesh is a low water pick up for outboards.
Im seriously thinking about raising my engine up around 4 to 5 inches to ride on the bullet or close to the
bullet and dont know exactly how or where to make the low water pick up. ?
Any advice or ideas including pics would be very good for me, i have a few ideas but probably totaly wrong.
I was thinking about a transom mounted pipe with a slash cut to force water up when on the move,
but will this work at slow speed ?
The impellor is a lot lower in the water than a transom mount would be at slow speed and not sure if it would prime itself etc.
is it best to fit one on the lower part of the gearbox at the front of the bullet ?
my engine is a 56ci omc with normal gearbox not a racing gearbox, and realy dont want to change it.
Also are nose cones the way to go, and do they realy just stick on with epoxy and stay put ?
any advice will be good
