Another older Lund question - dang livewell ports

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the input in my last post reassuring me that is no issue to move my drain plug from the inside well of the boat to the outside of the boat without fear of it coming out and leaving me in a rather terrible predicament.


So looking for advice/suggestions on my livewell ports.  So, 2000 1900 Pro Sport Lund.  Bench seats in the back that flip down on top of 2 livewell/baitwell.  Here is the problem, I didn't realize when I bought the boat that water can come inside the livewells from outside the boat from a small port (i.e. hole).  Only way you could get water in my dad's old fishing boat was to turn on a tank fill switch and let it pump up.  I thought thee was an issue because after a long day in the water, especially rougher water my livewells would be partly full, and sometimes one of them would be almost completely full.  I never hardly use livewells...I don't tournament fish so the fish get's either thrown back, or gets bonked the head and thrown in the livewell with a block of ice. 


the port is "funny, angled, cone-shaped, surrounded by a plasticized "grommet" I guess you would say...I have thought about plugging it somehow but never really have come across something that would do it adequately...apart from sticking the old sock inside with it hanging out the side of my boat.  I have been accused of being a bit of a redneck at times but I do have my limits.


It is probably the most aggravating feature of the boat.  I figured there was something wrong with the setup and I was in communication with the dealer and Lund who told me basically that this is the way they are made.  I am sure this poor design as long since been fixed...I mean if you don't want water coming into your livewell, you should be able to ensure that it doesn't.  I also thought you would be able to pump the water out of the wells to the outside - I originally thought that this is what the ports were for...going out, not coming in...instead, the wells can only be drained when out of the water and pulling drain plugs in the bottom.  Weird set up, I always thought there was a problem but Lund insisted no.  But if I can keep water from coming in, then I would be happy.

I have a pro-fisherman with the same setup. I bought it used and the ports were already plugged. The guy I bought it from said he got the plugs from Lowes, they fit perfect and don't leak a bit. Hope this helps.

    • Crestliner boat parts- bench seat, jump seat, livewell

      I changed the configuration of my boat and have no use for these parts. They would work great for a project boat. I have a flip down bench seat that creates a rear casting deck, livewell and fold down jump seat. I wanted to offer them here before they get destroyed. I'm willing to give them to someone who can use them, no money. They are located in cayuga county, 10 min south of Auburn. Let me know if you're interested.   Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    • Yet another question about sonar

      Way back when I was in the Navy I was stationed in SC. There I had a boat and fished my butt off. When I would troll at depths of about 150ft and 10 knots SOW I could still see my ball on my sonar. Today, I have a 17ft aluminum with lowrance hook2 splitshot.  I can not see my ball on the sonar down 50 feet trolling 2.5 mph SOG.  I checked my transducer alignment, sensitivity settings....what am I missing?

    • broadhead question

      Hi all, I began bowhunting about 10 years ago and practiced with field points and hunted with grim reapers. I killed and retrieved about 15 deer with grim reapers but I also had several hit the shoulder bone and not penetrate. So 2 years ago I decided to switch to Muzzys. I would be completely dialed in with my field points but with the Muzzys i couldn't make a "kill shot" on my targets. People on this forum said i needed my bow tuned. So i took it to Traditions and he said he tuned it perf
