Bilge Pump Suggestions for Stornoway 16

Post by pjmsj21 »

I have a very nicely built (by Walt Scherf) Stornoway 16 that I would like to add a bilge pump to. There is no cockpit drain. Plus since this is an open boat, I would like to find a way to remove water from spray when sailing on Puget Sound, frequently solo.

I am thinking that an electric bilge pump might be my best option to get water from whatever source (spray or rainwater) out of the boat. Currently I have to lift the very tight fitting floorboards out of the cockpit to get a handheld bilge pump into the area where the water collects.

I am happy to answer any question but would appreciate any thoughts that you might have.
