Understanding Bilge Pumps Video

This video is based on an upcoming article I did for Ocean Navigator magazine. Hope it is of use to someone.

Re: Understanding Bilge Pumps Video

Looks good. I've bookmarked it for later, as I have to get down to my boat on the hard today!

I like the light down the bilges, however, right off the top. My "shine an LED flashlight and wave it around until you see something" seems half-assed by comparison.

Can't sleep? Read for fast relief. Can't read? Avoid, because it's just personal reviews of sea books.

Great video. It unfortunately should all be common practice but is not. Thank you for the info I like your wire connector idea and the bilge light. Good info overall
