Do you have a separate intake? What drive do you have?

In that case the easiest way is to put a bucket under the pickup and put the hose in the bucket!

We fitted one of those to a jet drive RIB but it's just a T piece with a one way valve so that the water doesn't go straight out of the back, you could make your own with a T piece if you turn the intake off I suppose, you would still need to seal the hosepipe end as well when in normal use.

A bucket is still easier!

I have the 315 Yanmar 6LP engine, it has an off-engine strainer doesn't it?

Just open that up and stick the hose in there pointing at the water pump.

Thats how we do it, even when afloat.
