pumps and LED lighting and Portholes/hatches

Hey all! Looking for any advice, recommendations regarding freshwater pump, and bilge pump replacements. Currently I have two shurflow pumps. One for fresh water and one for bilge. Just questioning the bilge pump as it does not seem normal? It seems to work just fine, has a float and all but wondering if there is something better or more efficient? It still works just a little weak. The fresh water pump is out so I will be replacing that for sure just wondering if anyone has any pointers or other things I should look at replacing while Im at it.

Moving on to the led lighting refits. I currently have halogen dome and reading lights and I would like to move to a recessed LED or even a dome LED. Looking at the kits it looks like it just ties into my 12v system without anything crazy? Or is there something else Im missing. Thanks !

Lastly any tricks to fixing leaking hatches and portholes other than pulling them and replacing seals? I can figure it out but sadly Im away from my boat til the weekend and thought I would test the waters and hit up my yellow sailors. '

My boat is 1978 Niagara Nautilus 36 pilothouse. Look forward to hearing from you! any constructive criticism is welcomed! Im pretty mechanically inclined, although most of that is from the military and aircraft so any information helps! Thanks
