Re: Sea Chest

How about a vent hose that ends high in the engine room, close to deck level, centered in the boat? This would allow the water level to stay at outside sea level.

Mark,

That certainly addresses the problem of air in the seachest. Unfortunately, those of us with older SM models don't have that option since the washdown pump does not draw its water from the seachest.

Adding an "extra" pump just to suck out the air is one option, but seems to me a very inelegant one.
