Whale Supersub Bilge Pump 12V 650GPH
We have two of those on board, one waiting for a TUIT, ie me getting round to it. The other is an auto, rigged under the engine
which is the most likely location for a leak on our boat. Pumps water out into the cockpit
so the crew get wet feet if there is a leak and hopefully investigate. However, since we have dry dusty bilges it hasn't ever been called upon in 5 years.
On previous boats (mostly Ribs) cheap
rule/Johnson pumps only last a few years when mounted on an open deck
. However, have heard good things about the "Gold" range which are a little more bomb proof all be it at a price
