Accessories-
Our accessories section contains some items already found in our product kits, as well as some items only available in this section. Many boaters choose to purchase an additional pump, hose and thru-hull fitting for a second boat, or another battery for those long excursions. Our anchor pad and straps have become some of our most popular items, used to secure a dry box anywhere in a boat or raft. Since sea kayaks make use of several different foot brace pedal brands, we offer the two most popular models on our website for attachment of our waterproof electric on/off foot switch.

1000 GPH Bilge Pump

Factory tested 1000 GPH Johnson-Mayfair Proline style bilge pump. Pump can be run while fully submerged, or run dry without damage. Each pump comes with factory direct 16 gauge non-spliced one piece special order 54" wire leads (not the standard 30"). This allows for more versatility on installation. A quick release bracket allows for easy removal and cleaning, as well as switching between pumps of different capacity.

The 1000 GPH pump will remove water at a rate of 16.6 gallons per minute. At 8 pounds per gallon, this relieves your boat of 133 pounds of excess weight per minute (with fully charged battery, at zero inch hose height. As the height of the discharge hose increases, the pump output will decrease slightly). The pump will leave approximately 1/4" of water on the bottom of the boat. This 1000 GPH pump with its 4 Amp draw will drain a 3.3 Amp battery in about 50 minutes. Keep in mind that this is 50 minutes of time that the pump is actually on. This may translate to several trips.

The 1000 GPH bilge pump has a nominal operating voltage of 12 volts, with a cut off voltage between 9 and 10 volts. This 1000 GPH pump has a 4.0 Amp draw (in water), and requires a 5 Amp fuse (included in battery pack). Weight without hose or plug is 14 oz.

The purchase of a second pump also comes in handy if you own a second boat. Many boaters leave their pumps attached, while moving their waterproof battery box from boat to boat.

Replacement Batteries (micro dry box case not included)

Should the need arise, we provide replacement batteries for all of the models we offer. For those who take multi-day paddling excursions, a second fully charged battery is more convenient to take along than a battery charger. Replacement batteries are not interchangeable with different types of dry box cases (i.e. - A replacement Polymer Lithium battery will not fit into a Nickel Metal Hydride micro dry box case. All battery packs are specifically designed to fit into their respective cases, and are not interchangeable).

Outlet Hose

Outlet Hose
$1.25 per foot Feet:
New Smooth-Bore flexible non-kink vinyl hose, 3/4" ID, 1"OD.
(72" of hose for canoe, or 60" of hose for kayak is already included in a kit purchase)


Thru-Hull Fittings

These fittings are made of high quality anodized colored aluminum, available in straight and 45 degree angle outlet.

Thru-Hull Fittings

$15.95 Quantity:
Straight outlet fitting - for 3/4" ID, 1"OD hose.
This straight thru-hull fitting can be used to add a polished look for the whitewater canoe. Installed approximately one inch below the gunwale, toward the rear of the boat, this fitting is an alternative to simply draping the hose over the side of the gunwale.
Used primarily for whitewater canoes. (this item is already included in a canoe kit purchase)

$16.95 Quantity:
45 degree outlet fitting - for 3/4" ID, 1"OD hose.
This 45 degree angle thru-hull fitting is a favorite among the sea kayakers. It can be positioned to spray the water away from the paddler in a tight stream; unlike a straight thru-hull fitting that will blow water straight up into the air (and back onto the paddler on a windy day). This 45 degree angle fitting has a rounded top; to keep gear from getting snagged (as can often happen with a 90 degree elbow joint fitting).
Used primarily for sea kayaks. (this item is already included in a sea kayak kit purchase)


Foot Pedals - (Foot Pedals currently not available)

We offer individual purchase of the Keepers foot brace pedals, and the Yakima foot brace pedals. These are available for the attachment of our waterproof electric on/off foot switch. They come with predrilled holes and the nut and bolt hardware needed to quickly and easily attach your foot switch. From there you simply slide the foot pedal on your kayak’s foot brace rail, behind your existing foot pedal, and you're ready to go. If your foot pedals are already placed all the way forward in the compartment, the switch can be mounted on a small foam block.

Anchor Pads

This anchor pad has been specially created by Whitewater Designs Inc. for Rapid Runner Bilge Systems, to be used to hold down any of the battery dry boxes we offer. Many paddlers choose to purchase a second anchor pad for a second boat. This has become our most popular accessory item. Many boaters purchase this pad to hold down their Pelican dry boxes inside their canoes, kayaks, or rafts. Comes in Hypalon rubber or vinyl.

The Hypalon pad comes "pre-buffed" by sander before it is die cut, so you only need to roughen the area of the boat that comes in contact with the bottom of the pad. Because the bottom of the pad is pre-buffed there is no risk of damaging the stitching that holds the webbing to the pad. The Hypalon pad adheres very well to Royalex, fiberglass, Kevlar, aluminum and, of course, Hypalon, all with Shore adhesive.

A vinyl pad will adhere to Royalex and vinyl, with Vynabond and MEK.

Always check with your boat manufacturer for instruction before gluing down any items to your boat.
