  1. Ok i was going to use a cooler to use as livewell. My question is: Do i need an over flow drain So i dont over pump the water into it? I was going to drill 2 holes in the cooloer one with pump and one with the over flow wtich would be on top of the cooler. Thanks for any help

    if your going to pump water from outside the boat then you will need an overflow to keep the water level inside the cooler below the top of the cooler so it doesn't flood the boat. if you put the pump into the cooler to just keep recirculating the water in the cooler then no. there is another post on here that has some good pics of cooler livewells some guys have made.
