PS 197 cupholder drains
 
Hello All,
I have been battling with my front cupholders filling with water if I take some water over the bow. I bought some cupholders with drains in them but can't seem to find a way to get the water to the bilge.

I have decided to just plug the holes if I can't figure out a way to drain them. The water drains right into my carpet in the front and takes forever to dry out even if I take out the front seats.

Any ideas? Thx in advance

lol not be a smarta$$ but you are worried about the water in the cupholder if you take water over the bow???????

I think the solution is to obviously move somewhere warmer that will dry the carpet out. Seriously though its a pretty good hike to bilge land and I would just stop taking that much water over the bow lol.

They do make cupholders w/ drains that accept tubing on the bottom. You could potentially run the tubing from the forward cupholders to the bilge under the motor via the storage area under the front of the boat.

For that matter, you could just run the tubing to the battery box area which dumps into the bilge, if I remember correctly.

Anyone with a 197 will tell ya that water over the bow is inevitable--at least that's the excuse I keep giving myself every time it happens! :D

You're not kidding. Had quite a steep learning curve retrieving skiers -- 2200 revs is my number when crossing own wakes. And pointing stern towards surfers/wakeboarders. The first trip out was a clown act -- drenched two females in the bow.

My word for you - close bow! I love sticking the wake and making the water come up to the windshield!
