    Everything worked great but they didn’t seem to drain as well as expected. One of the check valves didn’t seem to be working, when I put my hand over the thru hull it finally started to suck the rest of the water from the 720 through the rear bag and into the pump. I’ll have to make sure I didn’t install it backwards. Part of the issue could be an excessive amount of air in the system since it was the first time out.

    I also realized the stock front bag has 2 vents/thru hulls so I need a second check valve up there.
    If you have time could you take a pic of the bow side of the stock rear bag? I didn't look at our correctly when I asked you before and ordered the same set up you have but think now I may have to sell / return it and just order the update kit with the larger rears. Anyone want to do this upgrade with stock rears? I'll give you a deal lol

    I am wondering what yours look like, I thought I had the "newer" bags but now I do not think I do.

    Yes, I just cut a little slit in one of the flexible vent tubes and ran the wire up through that.

    So the wife has pointed out (on several occasions) a fatal flaw in the max with the bow filler cushion......no cupholders.

    Problem solved! Havenít tried it with the big yeti cups yet but I think itís a winner. Easily removable too.

    Haha thanks for reminding me of the cup holders. My wife said the same thing and was like where are the cup holders up here (we use the bow filler every outing). I’ll have to get me some of those!

    I guess they're functional. Not the direction I would have gone, but it gets the job done.

    Personally, I would have busted out my hole saw and put in a pair of cupholders that were flush mounted into the deck. My XLV has a pair of cupholders for the bow that are flushed into the deck at the base of the windshield. For the Max, you'd probably have to put them on the front corners of the bow deck. PLENTY of room there. In fact, one of the things that bugs me about the Max is that in the area between the tip of the bow and the back of the front bow seats is DEAD SPACE where you can't access it. Total wasted opportunity for even more storage IMO. Making that a compartment for dock lines, anchor, etc would have been so much better than making it so it's impractical to impossible to access that space.

    Iíve considered drilling and adding some nice stainless cupholders, but figured if this works itís easy and worth a shot...
