......We were lucky, we carry a spare electric bilge pump with a hose and wires to connect directly to the electrical panel - how many have this? None of our sailboat companions had one to backup ours if it failed.
I'll wager few of us in fact do this...we don't (yet!).. thanks for the heads up.
Noted that on your 'spare parts' thread that the boat was ultimately written off.. can you give us a more detailed scenario on the incident and the specific damage?
