Re: Bilge improvment

It is mounted under the floor just forward of the bilge access floor board, and aft of the fuel tank bilge bulkhead. It is mounted as a unit (pump and strainer) on a board and then bolted upside down in the bilge, if that makes sense. You can't really see it unless you stick your head down in the hole, but because it is removable you can drop it down to empty the strainer, mess with the fittings, etc.
The hose is tee'd into one of the drain thru-hull hoses on the port side. I forget exactly which one.
I'll take a picture of the setup next time I'm at the boat, if I don't get sidetracked.
