there is no reason to stop you using that fitting for a bait tank,The only problem i can see is at high speed the water pressure would be quite harsh and would more than scale your live bait!!!!
You cannot slow the water flow down as this is the water exit for the exhaust pipe cooling and you dont want to modify that.
if you can live with the flow go for it.

I can't quite imagine how, but a high pressure release could be designed.... a smaller hose coming off the flush port one so that most high pressure water is released at speed?? I am willing to try something here, and will test the pressure from the flush port next time I am near the water.

live bait tank idea

Post  Fishoe on Mon Jan 26 2009, 17:27

come of the flush port into a garden t then to a inline tap going into the bin to control the flow, excess flow will be released out the garden t and could be shut right off if not using the tank and would flow out the t, any improvements on this im going to use the chilly bin that i have already have it has a drain bung, so just one inlet 3/4 way up and a drain 1" below it to circulate water can shut it of easy and drain if not needed

Well done Clint ! Certainly on the right track. As I said in my PM to you, you will also need to ensure the temparature is as close as possible to standard water temp and not overly hot if it flows via the exhaust for cooling. I am pretty sure youl will have only about a 1-2 degree celius tolerance over the sea water or else you will shock the livebait and they go into like a semi coma state as opposed to being the lively bait that you may require.
