If that is not crazy - what else?

The next pump I will have is a cheap 40 $ submersible pump.

I simply mounted mine to a bit of 1/2inch ply and sandwiched an old thong between it and the boat


Always find at least one washed up on a beach

They can be more finicky if you run the tanks dry, they have a bleeder to manually bleed the system if you run it empty, but not sure how challenging that is. They are designed to shut down when the dry so if you constantly run the tanks dry before switching or where you have really long tank runs they might not be a good option.
