The aluminum water tanks many times had an aluminum pickup tube welded in place. I have seen these tubes get holes in them due to corrosion, then when the water level is below the location of a hole, the pump will pick up air rather than water. An easy fix is to cut the tube off about 2" down from the top of the inside of the tank, and slip on a plastic hose that goes to the bottom of the tank. An easy job and it fixes the problem.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
