Do you have a high speed pickup?

And which way is the opening pointed, front or rear?
What kind of pump are you using.

I dont know about the high speed pick up, i replaced the pump about a year ago . The intake for it is on the back of the boat. Any advice on what type of pump to get. Thank you

On the back, like the transom? It above water when going more than 10kts? Usually pickup is on the bottom of the boat.

Did it ever work at high speed before or did it just stop recently? If you are getting water at slow speed your pump is fine. Show a picture of your set up and we might see what's wrong.

Sounds weird. Pickup should be on the bottom and discharge on the back. Lets get pics of the inside and out as suggested above.

If your water pick up is on your transom, you need this most likely...

It scoops the water when you are on plane so the water gets to the pump.

Batman is correct. That is what I had on my CS 23 Ultra Elite SS. I broke the first one and got no water to the live well at speed. After I replaced it, I was good to go.

Thanks for the link Batman. I just ordered one off of E-bay. Looks like a good fix.
