Boat Moored in a Tidal River

Boat Moored in a Tidal River

This owner did not even need to run the motor for the scoop strainer to clog up. This was on a sailboat and the direction/orientation was incorrect. If installing a scoop in a sailboat it should face backwards. The correct strainer for a sailboat is round and non-directional.

Cause river current, improper strainer orientation.

Regarding: "Boat Moored in a Tidal River," what does a scoop strainer look like, and how does one identify the front of the strainer? Presumably the front should be installed closest to the bow?

Thanks for a great site.
