I have a bilge
that is four feet deep and below the diesel engine
and drive shaft/prop shaft, so it is pretty much un-accessible.
I'm looking to install a bilge pump
that is not submersible so that I can service/troubleshoot issues easily. I will mount it on a flat table top bulkhead that I plan to install in the engine
room. I figure I'll glass in some fiberglass lift
tubes vertical to the sidewall of the bilge
, that then hose clamp to flexi-tube to route
to the pump station, then from the pumps route overboard
Does anyone know of self priming pumps that are designed for this application?
If you have solved
this problem on your own vessel I'd like to hear about it.
