My Manual Bilge Pump is Useless

I have a cockpit sole mounted manual bilge pump that is leaky. It leaks when pumping, and it sits right over the prop shaft- more leaking every time it rains. An inspection port would not only possibly repair this problem, but may even allow me to get better access to the stuffing box.
Has anyone ever removed theirs and replaced with an inspection port? If so, how well do the inspection ports hold up? Are they water tight?
Thanks.
