Hey J/E Forum,

I was told by my local repair shop that my boat didn't have a compartment for a livewell or that it simply didn't come with one preinstalled. I noticed this part inside my boat and I was wondering what is the exact function that it provides. Any info would be great. Thanks.

i would say its a washdown pump...driven by the "45 PSI pressure setting" on the decal.....

If you have a hose bib somewhere in the cockpit, I would say the pictured pump supplies it....

ahhh yes!

I have a coiled up water hose on my boat. I see what thats for. I assume I need to get that replaced with a new one so its easier to clean the boat while out fishing.

Thank you!

you are welcome!

If it isn't working, replacement would be in order. I would suggest getting a 'large' pump, especially if you go offshore...cleaning up a double header of tuna takes a lot of water....same when it comes to bailin' dolphin....

You ain't wrong.... It definitely got messy last time we were out by the keys.

Thanks again
