Pumping out a L'edge Lite ride?

Post by Einar » Mon Feb 13, 2017 4:28 pm

A friend has asked me to install a pump in her "new to her" L'edge Lite.

Can any one refer me to any images/posts of L'Edge pump set ups? I have installed pumps in royalex hulls (Tsunami 1200's) but working with plastic is new to me. What adhesive bonds best, if at all?

Thanks
Paddling is easy, organizing shuttles is hard.
Not misplacing all your crap in somebody else's car seems to be even harder

I just strap it to my saddle. A small notch in the saddle keeps it from slipping. Or you can use contact adhesive to make a small corral gluing in mini cell so you can strap pump and or battery to the mini cell

I really like to install it in front of my onside knee, strapped to the saddle. No glue. Outlet preferred 90 degree. This set up gives a short hose so less water left in the boat. You naturally lean forward and towards your onside so water pools there. Glue a wedge of foam on top of pump if you are worried about it not staying flush to bottom.
