    js550 bilge and foothold /footstrap questions...

    Bilge:
    What exactly do I need to install a bilge? Obviously a pump, switch and hosing, but I also need a exit port right? How about a 1-way valve?
    Can I use this http://waterwitchinc.com/online_cart...5f400d4d4fbd9d as my switch? Will that literally automatically turn my bilge on as necessary thus making a switch unnecessary?

    Footholds/footstraps:
    I just barely got into standups about 2 months ago and I love it! I really want to master the subs. Is it possible to install footholds? Idc about the extinguisher. Are straps a good idea instead?

    straps can be a good idea if you dont want to do any hull mods. yes you will need an exit port and a one way valve would be a good idea

    I used a check valve on my bilge. Its a good idea. I just picked up a brass one from the local plumbing store. I bought a pump with the automatic bilge switch and its very nice. I dont even have a switch on my handlebars. Just one under the hood to turn it off and manual override.
