My boat really doesn't have a bilge to speak of.. it's a trimaran, and if you lift up the cabin sole inspection port, there's only about 1.5" of "bilge". I sponge it out once in a while and have a portable rig setup if necessary. I also am adding manual bilge pumps to the two amas... which need to get pumped out once in a while.

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.
