daverbeck, good to hear from you. So may folks on this site willing to help.
That siphon sounds good too. I get really anal about scratches etc. Been told to ease up. But hey, it's my boat.
I would fit right into your "Geezer" club. I'm 72 feeling good, but having trouble with my fore-arms. So I hung my skies up. I really enjoy taking my kids and even more seeing our grand kids taking to the water. What fun they are having and that's all I need as long as I can still drive the boat and tip a cold one.....or two....or...

It is called the Shaker Siphon. It will be the best $10, or if you buy one in Northern WI it might be $14, you can spend. You can find them at auto parts stores and hardware stores too.

What I do is take my bench seat and flip it, vinyl side down, on top of the sun deck pad vinyl and use the "ugly side" of the bench seat as my shelf for the gas cans as I siphon the fuel out.

I'll have to investigate the shaker Siphon. It looks like it would also work for the kids so they can fill the jet ski too.

epnault; what lake are you on in Wi? I'm on Balsam Lake just east of St. Crox Falls.

Those siphons work very well. I have had one since 1992.

We are up in the summer in Wautoma and foot on Little Hills and Big Silver.



Super Siphon can be picked up at any truck stop for about $12. That's what we use to fill our BF200 (40 gallons) from the 5 gallon cans.


I made one of the pvc gas fillers as mentioned earlier...was cool looking but holding a 5 gallon jug for more than a few minutes was not fun...super siphon is the way to go.

Small world EricB. My wife and I bought our first place last winter on Loveless, just down the road from Balsam. Smaller lake but we got really good deal on a 4 season home with a garage. It was also a great way for us to see if we liked having 2 places without breaking the bank.

We love Balsam the most of any of the lakes in our area but we just couldn't find the right place over there. We boated up there a lot in the first couple years we owned our MC. You are a lucky man. We will likely try to sell our place in 3 years and start shopping over there again.

When the water gets rough over at your place, give me a call. Our lake is a really good for watersports and particularily slalom skiing

You're right....small world.
We'll have to ski once the water gets softer again in spring. Do you do any winter stuff up at the lake?

Actually up at the cottage right now. Going to pick up my first ever (used) snowmobile tomorrow.

Hopefully I won't hit a tree the first day!
