If I understand, the reason boats sink is a result of not knowing where the leak is.
That being said, alot of water
must be moved at an alarming rate. On our boat
, we have a genset and a Honda
2000. The Honda
will run 7-9 hours on the load of a household sump pump
with a flat collapsible hose that will roll out of a porthole. The genset can run at quart an hour and we have 80 gallons.
A moderate sized house hold sump pump
can pump around 5000 gallons per hour. Plus with the bilge
pumps sucking out 1500 gallons per hour. Now we have a plan to find the leak.
Hope I never have to use them but having a household sump pump with 2" flat collapsible hose is very cheap insurance
