Yes, pumps are vital, i should know. Ive got plans for both of my boats(considering i get the sunk one up) to install at least 1 automatic and 2 manual electric pumps and a manual pump in the cockpit, clearly marked. On my Pearson ive got a sign on the companion way door that says if the waterline is under the water to turn on the pump(no auto switch) and let it run. Ive got the switch for it very clearly marked out. Ill also be fixing the manual pump this weekend.
