I belong to the school
that believes you can't have too many big bilge
pumps. I have two Rule
3500's, one in the forward cabin bilge
, one aft. I also have a smaller one in the engine
compartment, and the wiring
and switches installed for each of the two floats. That's just for the electrics, then there are the Whale 10's built-in, and the Whale 25 mounted on a plywood
base with a handle. And my boat wouldn't sink if none of them worked. Go figure.
