How do you keep water in your fish hold with this setup?

I like the tub idea. I don't like the idea of slowing down any water going into the bilge with screen of any kind - might need to get that water out quick like some day.

your bilge pumps wont keep up with big waves over the bow with water getting into the bilge. they likely wont keep up with just water coming in from a lost plug.

What Ray said. My OP has 2 650 gallon per hour bilge pumps. Assuming full efficiency (which isn't the case due to having to pump water uphill, and restrictions from the hose fittings), that is 1300 gallons per hour. A 2" round hole will pass 3300 gallons per hour without any pressure being applied.

The gutter guard is really porous. I don't think it slows water down much at all.

Randy,
I don't use my fish hold in the floor but a rubber plug could be used to keep water in the hold if you want to. If a lot of water were to flow into the box under the floor drain holes, the excess would just flow into the bilge where the bilge pumps would take care of that.

it seems if you are lucky you might get half of what the pump says. and thats only if your engine is running and putting out 13.6 volts. key off who knows at 12.6 max.

Did you swap out hoses, or did the stock 3/4" hose fit those bigger pumps?

I'd like to upgrade at least one of them eventually to a big sucker. My buddy's Stabicraft had 2 big 2200 GPH pumps , but he had to swap out fittings and hoses to make it work.

I was searching for something else on this forum and came upon this thread. I wanted to bump it in case other people were interested in the idea. Seems like a pretty neat retrofit.
