Many years ago, my summer job was swimming pool maintenance
- we always used a small submersible pump that we just tied to a line and tossed onto a flooded pool cover to pump off a winter's worth of rain before opening for the season.
I didn't think that these would work for salt water
, but a quick look on the Internet
Machine turned up this: BJM Pumps 1" 12 Volt Battery Submersible Pump - BABY 12V
I don't know if this is the right model or not - just trying to get the idea across.
Seems as though you could just lower it over the side, drop it well beneath any floating crud, and use it to wash down the decks, ground tackle, etc. I haven't tried it, but I'm seriously thinking about it for the spring to keep the teak
decks clean. Has anyone tried anything similar?
