Clever idea and I'm not opposed to installing an additional pump for this job. All I need to do is get the water to the bilge with the bilge pump. Manually switched would be better than nothing, but I'm even thinking of a timer, as long as the pump can run dry.

I think the trick here is going to be the pickup. The Arid Bilge pickup looks interesting and I would think it could be replicated. Not sure.
