Re: Dry bilges
Is there a height difference that would allow a wick to work? Sort of like a syphon, if you set a wick into the water and drape it up and over whatever the obstacle in the way of draining is, then place the other end lower it will transport water.
Yes, the actual deep bilge with the pump is lower by a few inches. However, the wick would have to climb about 2 ft over a stringer. That should theoretically work, but would it restart if all dried out for a few days?
