New Attalia owner with bilge pump question
Good day everyone,
I have been reading this post since we acquire our first boat last August. She is an 1986 Attalia and she is going in the water next week. We will be sailing on lake Ontario and I have to say that it will be a long week !
We were not allowed to have her back in the water last summer, survey said rudder is full of water and need to be fixed, we also had to have the propane upgraded to meet ABYC code, these were the two insurance requirements for her to go back in... therefore could not get everything fixed before the end of the season last year.
Anyhow, I have a question for the group, the bilge pump is in the head, in my boat there are actually two pumps side by side, is this the standard configuration ? One is the bilge pump, what is the other one for ?
