driven is not out of the question - and the boat was cruised by the original owner with one. There is a PTO on the front, and he had a shaft over the engine to drive both a WM and refrigeration
. Both are gone now, and I removed the shaft, but I could easily mount a pump on top of the engine driving it from the double pulley PTO.
Running the engine every few days for water
would not be so bad, but I am trying to exhaust
other possibilities before going that route
. We have 240w of solar
and soon a wind
genny, so right now I think we are energy independent. Once we have it all up, and can spend some more days on the hook, I will have a better idea.

Is an engine driven pump out of the question?
