    Anybody installed a thru hull pickup for Bravo III?-gctid398006

    I'm still struggling with the low water flow issues and high rpm overheat, looking to put in a seawater strainer thru hull for raw water pickup and be done with it!

    Wondering if anyone has done this on a similar single engine boat (2855) and pickup location. I've read that some people just T into the outdrive pickup, while some cut the S hose short to allow some cooling water thru the drive still? Any ideas and advice appreciated, especially in regard to loactaion and what to use to seal the drilled surfaces thru hull-

    My last boat was a Bay 2750. Someone along the line had installed a through hull w/ seacock for the raw water side of the cooling system. The pump on the leg was disabled and all raw water flowed out through it along with exhaust. It can be done.

    This was an OMC Cobra drive and I don't know the particulars of the Bravo III so take this with a grain of salt.
