Re: The black box

With all that jumble of wiring it's impossible to see what wire is connected to what....
But the black box has a hose connected to it, so it's either a pump ( if it has wiring connected) or it's a strainer box for a remote mounted pump. Follow the hose and see where it goes.

Re: The black box

It’s a “Strum-Box”, or bilge pump strainer.

Re: The black box

Do you have a manual bilge pump? Looks like the pickup point for a manual pump. If I am correct, the housing includes a debris filter.

Ha… as usual, Gord gives the best answer. Strum box eh?
