Or, you can just run the hose overboard. This way, a continuous stream keeps
the line clear, and its easy to check that its working.

idiot, you just described a siphon.

jeffies, you really are too dumb to even be able to understand just how dumb.
I hope to god no one takes your "advice" seriously, for they can get hurt doing
so. leave the talking, jeffies, to the adults.

What? Do you have any idea what a siphon is?? A small line squirting water
into the air a foot above the water does NOT make a siphon! Jaxie, you really
should look at a boat sometime. A real boat, not the toys in your bathtub.

Siphon: 1 a : a tube bent to form two legs of unequal length by which a liquid
can be transferred to a lower level over an intermediate elevation by the
pressure of the atmosphere in forcing the liquid up the shorter branch of the
tube immersed in it while the excess of weight of the liquid in the longer
branch when once filled causes a continuous flow.

you are hopeless jeffie. put that hose high enough not to be a siphon and all
you have done is move the "plug up point" higher and into a point at which at
high heel angles you do indeed have a siphon.

jeffies, this is *easy* stuff, as in E Z!!!!!!!

ain't it interesting that in the end jeffies tells us yes indeed the water
injection unit is indeed supposed to be well above the water line??

my, my, my.

then he goes on to tell us that someone somewhere suggests a anti-siphon be
installed because sometime idiots don't place the water injection unit where it
is supposed to be?

my, my, my.

just like I said three days ago, the guy with salt water in his engine from
hobby horsing did NOT have an anti-siphon valve problem, AND no way in hell is
an anti-siphon valve installed downstream on the water lift muffler.

RTFM, jeffies. next time RTFM.

Jaxie, you don't know what you're talking about: If you have a vent hole on a
high loop, when the water is flowing, that keeps it clear; when the water stops
it's a siphon break. Very simple, no moving parts, no clog. When you see the
flow out the vent you know its not clogged. Its very simple, but obviously
beyond your limited capabilities.

jeffies, what is in that water? what happens to that stuff in that water when
the water stops flowing and evaporates? How much pressure do you think a raw
water pump produces? How much pressure is needed to raise water one foot? two
feet? three feet?

now remember, jeffies, *you* are telling the impressionable newbies on the ng
to do ALL this because *you* did not know until this morning that water
injection units are supposed to be mounted above the water line.

do you find your behavior morally reprehensible, jeffies? I do.

What's your point jaxie? Are you now claiming the pump can't raise the water a
few feet?



now remember, jeffies, *you* are telling the impressionable newbies on the ng
to do ALL this because *you* did not know until this morning that water
injection units are supposed to be mounted above the water line.


I'm just telling folks they should follow the standards. You're the one saying
they should remove their siphon break because its useless. If they followed
your advice they could destroy their engine and the insurance company could
refuse to pay. Good work, jaxie!


So tell us jaxie, why does the ABYC, the group that sets the standards for boat
manufacture in the US, agree with me, and not with you?



do you find your behavior morally reprehensible, jeffies?


I have no trouble telling people to follow the standards of the ABYC. You,
however, seem to have no qualms about saying anything. For instance, you
claimed that a boat couldn't sink from a 2 inch hole, 2 feet below the waterline
because the flow rate is only about one gallon a minute; most engineers agree
its close to 2 gallons a second. Taking the moral high ground doesn't suit you,
jaxie.
