I'm dragging this out - sorry. But I seem to have a design flaw. I think I figured out two mysteries though. Once i fill my spray tank and squirt some I seem to start a siphoning process that continues to drizzle a small stream until it empties the tank. So now I know why it didn't seem to make a difference cause it was empty and also why the tank was empty when I didn't spray much. So.... Other than mounting the nozzle higher I don't think there is another option.... I think I'm going to get a bolt and make a new one.... Higher.... Confirm my suspicion that it's my only option. Thanks

Yeah, for two dollars and a small amount if time you get a low profile stainless steel indestructible spray nozzle that's real easy to install. Kinda makes you wonder how companies can sell $30 plastic ones. Nobody should every put one in an airboat that isn't one of these after seeing, using, and installing both. Jmo. Thanks for the info you shared.

My tank is mounted under the foot stand so I didn't loose any floor space. I had the same problem and installed a valve that I could open and close as needed.

It's a carter was in the boat when I bought it. Looks like the fuel pump I have too that I can't read the label on its faded. Had a discussion with some guys this weekend that actually having a fuel pump for the sprayer vibes you a backup that can be repurposed in an emergency without having a loose one just in the boat. Just an idea....
