I'd add that a proper bilge pump setup will have several pumps.... ideally, it will have a small maintenance pump down in the very bottom of the bilge, one or more de-watering pump with the float switch an inch or so higher than that of the maintenance pump, and two large, high-capacity manual bilge pumps—one in the cockpit and one down below—both accessible from the companionway.

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.
