After some study of the issue, it seems there is simply a design flaw on our boat, where water that comes down the mast will remain in one flat section of the bilge and never reach the pump.
Since it's not a leak, I'm going to need to figure out how to pump it out of this flat space. It does not get deep enough for a traditional pump.
I looked at the Arid Bilge system, which is outrageously expensive.
I also looked at the Dry Bilge system, which I don't think will really pick up the last bit. Having even a 32nd inch of water sitting there is a problem.
Any home built recipes for fully drying out a bilge?
Its not a leak, so finding it is not the answer.
