If you're really against installing a new through hull for the second pump, you could always plumb it so that it drains into the cockpit, and out the cockpit drains. Of course, if your cockpit drains use hoses and they fail, this will tend to screw you royally... but you can't have everything.... It is just as much work to install a through hull as it is to have the bilge pump drain into the cockpit, so just do yourself a favor and install a through hull instead.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
