Silly question .... But

What is this? The galvanized plate starboard side or the cockpit. I inherited Dads Morgan 321 and my o'day didn't have this in the cockpit. I won't be at the boat for 5 more weeks

Thanks

Re: Silly question .... But

Not sure if you mean the bilge pump to the starboard side of the wheel, just below seat level. You put a handle in that hole and pump to clear the bilges of water. It is actually aluminum colored black.

All I can see is the shore power outlet cover.

Thank you. That is exactly what I am referring to. Is that a manual bilge?

Re: Silly question .... But

Looks like a manual bilge pummp, but could be a cover for shore power. But bilge pump first..

Re: Silly question .... But

Yes, a close up would be nice. My eye strain says it's a screw on fitting for an electrical outlet? Could be a bilge pump handle receptacle too but it doesn't look like the ones I've had.
kind regards,

Re: Silly question .... But

Handle socket for a manual bilge pump. When you lift the cover you'll find where you insert the handle.

It's a safety feature so that you can pump the bilge dry while sailing. One hand on the wheel, one on the pump, and hold the mainsheet with your teeth. No worries.
