Can you post a pic of your sandtrap??Running shallow in these rivers even with care fills the engine cooling water sand filter pretty often if ya hit a bar few times. I find myself cleaning it several times each outing. When the engine cover is built, I will not have the ability to casually look around and visually see the sand level. Will probably need to rig up some type of alarm so that when the water pressure drops to a certain pressure I am alerted and can clean the filter before waiting on the engine to overheat.
Any ideas? In a perfect world I would have some sort of sensor in the sand trap that would directly measure the level of solids in the bowl but all I have found so far seems to be fairly expensive ultra sonic sensors.
Anyone have the specs handy for min. water pressure at idle and WOT?
This is what we run on the rivers around here. If you have yo adapt your plumbing and it's not what you are using I'd highly recommend it.
Only downside is it dumps the sand in the bilge, so you need to wash it out when you get home. Tilt the trailer and hose it out. Pretty minor work looking at what you've been doing to the boat.
