Where's the water intake in this set-up? I'm plumbed into a standpipe, but otherwise what you are describing is my set up.

A second thought would be to have a manual bilge pump like a Patay connected with two pickups, one to the bilge and the other to the holding tank, with an exit to the thruhull.
