Author Topic:   Raw Water Outlet Fitting
SJUAE posted 02-28-2009 02:35 PM ET (US)   Profile for SJUAE  
Can anyone please link a part that will quick connect a ½” garden hose to the raw water wash down outlet on a 210 Outrage.

I suspect it’s the same one used on a few BW boats but the standard European fittings won’t fit as they are metric and the imperial ¾” one here is a different thread to the US, (more coarse).

I have a 20ft coiled hose that I want to attach.

Many thanks in advance
Regards
Steve

Steve, not sure I follow you. Is your raw water outlet different from a standard garden hose thread? That's whats on my 210. If it's the same then your hose fittings are different. I could send you a hose adapter if you tell me the internal diameter of your hose. P.S. I can also tell you how to set it up for fresh water too if you want to do that.

Thanks for your reply, I know it seems silly for a little part but most garden hoses etc outside US are metric and although there is adapters to configure then to old style imperial taps etc which are still commonly found these are usually ½” or ¾” BSP (British Standard Piping) threads which I think are Whitworth threads based on a 55 degree thread angle.

I think US threads are National Pipe Tapered Thread (NPT) using a 60 degree thread angle for common applications.

Which is why I think our garden hose connections won’t seal/thread correctly on yours

The hose I got is similar to this (see link below) and is 13mm dia almost ½” (~12.5mm) so should not be a problem just the BW outlet:

I’ve had similar problems when buying other US items like extra grab hand rails that are pre threaded these have US thread patterns, fortunately a little shop here sells all sizes of s/s nuts and bolts.

I would be most interested in fresh water set-up I was contemplating getting a plastimo 13 gallon flexible tank

and either putting it inside the deluxe seat behind the fish well (but that would give a reduced volume) or somehow mounting it where the factory fitted tank would be underdeck, but fixing seems a problem. It would be great if you already have the solution etc.

Steve, you are correct in that most non tapered piping threads are not compatible with U.S. stuff. The thread on your boat is actually a straight 3/4" thread @ 60'I can send you an adapter for your 1/2" hose if you have already bought it. Or I can pick up a coil hose just like it and a sprayer and send that to you. With regards to the freshwater setup. I am assuming you have the deluxe leaning post with livewell. If so, you have a pump on a thru hull(white) that fills the live well and a second pump for the salt water wash down. The washdown pump inlet is tee'd into the livewell pump near the top. You need a tee and valve that will go to your livewell pump. I installed a bulkhead fitting in the bottom side of the livewell thru the door and connected this to the washdown pump. Having done all that, if I want fresh water, I fill the livewell up with fresh, close the thru-hull on the white pump, and open the tee valve to the livewell bulkhead fitting. It's good for a days worth of snorkelers and swimmers rinsing off. Water does slosh out of the livewell in motion so I am looking for a latch for the lid. I can send pics and a sketch of the setup in the next week or so. We've got our Homosassa rendezvous coming up in two weeks so I will be on the boat.

Many thanks, we can try the adapter first as postage to here is an arm and a leg from the US.

When you get time a pics and a sketch of the setup for the fresh water would be great.

I'll email you privately for postage details etc

Steve

I picked up today a hose adapter and two barbed fittings for 3/8" and 1/2" ID hose. PM me your address and I'll ship them out. If the barbs are not quite right, maybe you can find someone with a lathe to modify them a bit.

I have the same boat as you do. I am very interested in your fresh water set up. Could you send pics and a sketch of the setup to me please?

Thanks in advance,
Dale Russell

Shure, The key is to put a bulkhead fitting as low as possible in the side of the livewell. Then you connect a hose from it (with a valve) to the hose that runs from the top of the livewell pump (white, on top of the thru hull seacock)to the raw water washdown pump(under starboard rear seat)A tee needs to be put in the hose to make this connection. To use it you fill the livewell with fresh water, close the seacock, open the new valve. I use a coiled garden hose and sprayer. You get about ten gallons of water for a few bucks of parts and time. Only problem is the water sloshes out while running in a bumpy sea. I am considering a latch for the livewell lid and some kind of gasket material. I will try to find a drawing of the plumbing and or a picture of the bilge and livewell connections.

Fno,

Thanks for the response. I would appreicate any drawings and or photos. I think I understand. The only thing I'm not sure about is the "bulkhead fitting" that you describe.
