Boat Bilge, Preparing for Fiberglass - Chris Does What

Boat Bilge. Preparing for Fiberglass EP #11 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

I think sanding Boat Bilge and Stringers is the most uncomfortable part of the restore of this 2004 Bayliner Bowrider 175. We don’t think that the new floor will leak water, but if it does we don’t want the stringers to rot. Fiberglass is amazing, but installing it has to be the hardest part of …

Installed Seaflow Bilge Pump - Chris Does What

Seaflo Boat Bilge Water Pump 750gph EP #6 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

Installed the Seaflo bilge pump and the first day of testing in our boat and we love it. May get another one just to have a spare in the bilge, at $29 it does not cost much. Danielle’s biggest fears on the ocean are sinking and sharks, this pumps water out of the boat faster …
