Hello everybody. I finally got around to doing the video on the Flush Bag. It works great! Enjoy

I really like the flush bag and want to get one. My question is do you have to remove prop to use? Thanks in advance.

Nope, you do not have to remove the prop. The only thin I do not like about it is the amount of water I have to let out to flush the second engine. Thin king of building a rolling stand to put it on so I can just push it to the next engine without draining most of the water out.

Check harbor freight they have different size platforms on rollers. Great idea! Thanks I'm going to order a flush bag. Appreciate all the info.

Thanks. I will look at Harbor Freight today for those platforms.

I wish those flush bags fit a 300. A cut off 55 gallon drum doesn't fit either. It looks like I have to go with a big ol' tub. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/rubbermaid-structural-foam-stock-tanks-100-gal-capacity?rfk=1

I am making myself a flush bag this week. Should have a prototype sewn up this week-end to try out. My plan is to support it with grommets at the top, and hang it rather than have legs. Rodney, do you know how tall yours is, my pattern is 30"?
edit: I see in the unpacking video that it was 24-25 inches tall.

I want to say it is 25inches. What size engine do you have? The water is heavy as crap for my 150. So much so that I could not push the bag to the second engine without taking a lot of water out of the bag. Now, I have tires on the bottom of a makeshift stand I made to roll the bag around when water is in it. Just make sure your bag covers all of the "holes" or water inlets on the lower unit. Let me know if I can help out in any way.

I have a Yamaha 200 2troke, and a Yam 115 4 stroke. My design is more triangular, and a closer fit, to use less water, but it will be plenty tall. My only concern is whether there is enough suction at those water intakes to pull the bag up against the lower unit, and block the holes. Have you ever stuck your hand in the bag and felt the pull of the water pump?

The suction of the water pump did not seem very strong although it is noticeable. That could be due to the size of the flush bag though. I don't think the suction will be strong enough to suck in a bag that is full of water and covering the lower unit.

I ended up buying a galvanized stock tank from Tractor Supply for my F300. It fits perfectly. I put some pool noodle around the top edge to prevent scuffing my engine when slipping it in place. It's a bit awkward to move around and doesn't fold up nicely like the bags do for storage but it works for me and is built to last. It also has a threaded drain built in that you can screw any normal gate or screw valve into for easy draining.

I got this from one of my buddies and cut it down a little to fit. Works great for twin engines.

That's cool. It prevents having to drain the flush bag some in order to move it to the next engine.

I have a heavy duty industrial sewing machine, and I sewed one up this fall using the PVC shower liner you buy off the roll at HD or Lowes. Pics are buried somewhere on my phone.

I use a blue plastic 55 gallon drum on my Yamaha 200 V6 four stroke. I measured from ground up to motor mount and sawed it off with skill saw. Added a plastic tube to pee hole so water goes back in drum for use inside on conctete floor. Works good! Pump out with small pump when finished.

Hotjob, can you tilt the lower unit out of the barrel with it sitting full of water?

No! Have to pump barrel out. Could add a drain but have a pump that works good! To start with I install barrel over tilted motor and ease motor down into barrel, then add water. Motor is a barrel full but it works good!
