It's all related to where the open end of the pick up tube is in relation to the prop. It should be in line with the tip of the prop blade so when the water come off the prop it will enter the P/U tube under pressure. If it's lined up with the hub, then you will get little or no water. Obviously the open end of the tube should be facing forward or at least have a large enough chamfer on it so it is essentially facing the incoming flow.

Here is mine on one of my boats
I upgraded my pipes from brake pipe to these tubes inside diamitor of 4mm
When i first brought the boat it had the brake pipes fitted to it and it had problems keeping it cool so i replace with those tubes, perfect
