    Default Intake Set-Back

    Does anyone know where a "how to set back an intake" thread might be located? I'd like to know how far back one can be moved safely.

    Thanks,
    Wags

    What do you mean safely?

    A pump can be moved way way back, it just needs to be done properly and with added bracing.

    How far back you thinking?

    Mainly just so the hand hole is out side the transom.

    Done daily with little compromise of strength.

    You have to remember that all of the thrust gets to the hull by way of the epoxy bedding for the intake, not the T/A.

    I would recommend a pump brace that goes from stringer to stringer and mounts to the front four bolts of the suction housing. There is a lot of strain on that area on a setback.

    Default Set Back

    Some boats because of bottom design are not good canadates for a set back pumps. Before you decide to set your pump back check with some of the guys on the boards with your style of boat and get some input on how the boat handles with this mod.Its a lot of work to move the pump back but it's a whole lot more work to change it back.

    Then do the Reader's Digest condensed version. The way this thing has been setting on the plumber's night mare of a trailer, I'm sure it's out of whack. Here's the wreck of a trailer (?) and how the hull is sitting.

    Slip some bunks under that extend past the transom. You don't know until you start measuring stuff.

    Before you pour a lot of time and money into this hull, what are your goals/expectations from it???
