Just curious - but how do you reliably pump raw water
without an vanned impeller in the pump (be it electrically driven or mechanically driven)?
I would think that the cooling
water for the genset's engine
would be so critical that only a "vanned impeller" type pump would have the required reliability
. A "slinger" or centrifugal disc type pump (like those used in air conditioning
systems) would be too easily fouled by debris or grass or little fish
or whatever comes down the hose from the sea.
Add to that the power source for the "electric water pump" can be easily interrupted and then you lose cooling and the genset shuts down. A least a mechanically driven water pump will operate as long as the engine
Just curious . . .
