emergency dewatering

For those who worry, I saw a Honda, 72 GPM, 4 stroke unit yesterday that only weighed 20 lb and was smaller than a basketball! Cool little thing... internet too slow to find a pic right now....

I had one of those on my small towboats back in my Boat/US days... good machines!

Re: emergency dewatering

Looks like they are online for about $460. At 20lbs this would be a great dewatering pump to have as a backup. Probably cheaper than setting up a large permanent electric pump and cheaper than the engine bolt on pumps.
