View Full Version : Vent lines kinking

Been having trouble with vent lines kinking up when I fill them up. Yesterday it caused the fill line to come unconnected and all that water everywhere. Any solutions?

What type of hose are you using?

I had similar issues with the lighter duty braided type stuff early on. I bet the economy black is no better. This stuff is by far the best if you have any corners or crush concerns: http://www.wakemakers.com/premium-marine-ballast-hose.html

Little more spensive perhaps but worth it!

Mine do this occasionally. Just gotta be carefull how you place the sacs in the rear. If someone puts my bags in the boat for me, they always kink.

If I do it, no problem.

I extended the lines so they vent from the front of the bags. The chances of kinking are pretty much gone.
