The perfect water pressure...

Water Pick Up

High performance marine engines rely on sea/lake water to cool their engines and exhaust systems.  Providing an adequate supply of cooling water at speeds that can vary by 50-150+MPH is a challenge.  Typically, we have been forced to position the water pickup low enough for slow speed cruising and then use pressure regulators and/or overboard dumps to relieve the extreme pressures that high speeds generate.


MDC was recently granted a patent for their self-regulating water pickup.  This innovative design automatically adjusts the depth of the pickup based on incoming water pressure.  This unique design offers the lowest possible drag at top speed without having to compromise water pressure at cruise.  


Pickup exactly how much water you need at every speed!
