Bilge pump

Published date: December 1, 2019
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I installed a West Marine 2000 GPH bilge pump with 1-1/4" hose and a float switch under the cooler. I routed the hose to the transom thru-hull. It took about fourteen feet of hose. In the right of the large picture you can see the transom thru-hull just to the right of the engine. To the left of the bilge pump under the hose you can just see the depth transducer (transom type) that shoots thru the hull. I have it stuck in a bed of plumbers putty which works great. Also you can see a portion of the 4-guage welder cables that run from the starter battery in the v-berth storage to the engine.
