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.

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
