Have you ever tried a Diaphragm pump? Your story is yet another great example of why a dry (or relatively dry) bilge is important. One that I would have never thought of.
It was a Rule with an exceptionally long hard freeze. The pump body cracked. Easy fix. I just dropped the spare in. The pump sits in a little pocket made just for it behind the keel that only holds about a pint of water when the pump is finished. I keep spares of almost everything for the boat. The bigger issue is getting rid of the knot meter. I don't use it anyway. I'm thinking a plugged thru hull.
The diapram worked great for the wife.
