If at all possible have them build in clean out ports. Even if they have to put them on the inboard side. It will be worth every penny.

How about the standard capilano air bleed unit. Just open the screw and crank the wheel in one direction until the air is gone. Or, second best, install a bypass valve at the solid to flex couplings...

OC diver is correct, if the pump and strainer top is above the waterline you wont get any flow. But,,, I assume it was working before, and most boat builders are smart enough to put the raw water...

Maybe, but I'll bet the twin 240s get about the same mpg at 7.5 mph as the 4-236s, or so close as to make you say WTH would anybody put 4-236s in that boat.
