A simple installation drain valve alternative for the OEM drain plugs in Yamaha model Watercraft. Machined from 6061 aluminum and clear anodized for corrosion protection, the Vacate Valve operates on the same principle as the Blowsion One Way valve, using the forward motion of the watercraft and gravity to allow ingested water to simply vacate the hull in one direction only. Direct threaded replacement for the flimsy OEM plastic drain plugs, the Vacate valve also simplifies interior flushing of the engine compartment.
IMPORTANT NOTE: BLOWSION VACATE VALVES ARE A PERFORMANCE UPGRADE ACCESSORY AND ARE DESIGNED TO ACCELERATE THE DRAINING OF YOUR INTERIOR HULL AREAS. THIS DRAINING PROCESS RELIES ON THE FORWARD MOTION OF YOUR WATERCRAFT WHEN IT IS UNDERWAY, OR WHEN IT IS BEACHED OR TRAILERED ABOVE THE WATERLINE. STATIONARY FLOATING OF YOUR WATERCRAFT MAY ALLOW A SMALL INGRESS OF WATER THROUGH THE VACATE VALVES--- ESPECIALLY IF YOUR WATERCRAFT IS FLOATING IN AN AREA WITH HEAVY BOAT WAKE WAVE ACTION. WE RECOMMEND RETAINING YOUR OEM DRAIN PLUGS AND INSTALLING THEM FOR PERIODS OF USE WHERE YOUR WATERCRAFT WILL BE FREE FLOATING FOR MORE THAN 30 MINUTES OR MORE.
