I want to add a raw water washdown pump to my sea sport. I don't really want to drill a new hole in the transom to add a sea cock.
My first thought, was I could connect to the raw water pickup for the cooling. Adding a tee to the line shouldn't really affect the flow to the engine, and I could valve off the pump when I'm not using it.
Is this a bad Idea?
How's your raw water pickup installed?
This was easier on my last boat, it was an outboard, I just ran the hose out with the engine controls and zip-tied it to the transducer bracket.
