I bought a Livewell/leaning post combo to replace the original cooler seat about a year ago and still haven't installed the dam thing. :504_shrugging: I have most if not all the necessary parts to install, but Im a little nervous to install myself. This will be a fresh install on a 1975 19-6, including all plumbing, electrical, pumps, inspection hatch, deck hatch, thru-hull fitting etc..

So I guess I have a 2 part question. 1. Any Suggestion for reputable glass/install guy in the Clearwater/St. Pete area? 2. Should I tackle the install myself (with your guys help of course? sSc_help

Nothing wrong with feeling the jitters before making holes in your deck and hull. I recon every lover of their boat would feel the same. But the answer to your question is strictly dependent upon how "handy" you are. This particular install is not high on difficulty, more high on time consuming. Tons of info on the net and here on forums.

If saving as much money as you can is in play, do as much of the install as you can. Then have a pro do the rest. The labor cost for the baitwell install is where the big bucks will be. Plumbing parts are inexpensive. It's the number of hours of install that will add up.

Scott give me a shout. We can install it at my shop if you like. Otherwise I have some contacts you can reach out to if you want a shop to do it.

Scott, I'm with Bruce.

It is an easy install, main freak as he says is taking the hole saw to the hull. Not a big deal, more of a measure twice cut once thing. You'll be running a bronze 3/4 inch clamshell pickup, thruhull, seacock, then pump...you want all of this as low as possible in the bilge so self-primes easily. Your overflow will be 1 1/2 inches. Pump size is a function of livewell gallon capacity. My 30 gallon runs a 500 gph Rule and well-pleased....some people opt for more but I'm not looking to blast 'em.

You can run the overflow out the transom with a standpipe inside the well, or for a double-walled well the hose to the bilge can go between the walls.

Heck, some folks up here just run the outlet hose across the deck and over the transom. Not real pretty but it works.

Would definitely take Bruce up on his nice offer, his shop is deluxe and he knows his way around a boat :605_thumbs_up:

Can't really see where you'd need to hire someone on any part of the install. Good luck!
