Well, I left the sensor/plug out when the marina launched the boat.

Fortuantely they are professionals and check the bilges after launching. Or maybe they heard the rushing-water sound that a small gyser of water makes.

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.
