Re: My Manual Bilge Pump is Useless

What are you going to use as a bilge pump when you remove it. i would suggest to you that you definitely want a manual bilge pump as a safety feature. You don't want to rely solely on electronic equipment in an emergency. You can rebuild and rebid/ reinstall it in such a way that it doesn't leak. Who makes this pump, someone might be able to provide you with a link to a rebuild kit. moving it out of the cockpit like you said is also an option but I wouldn't get rid of it.
