Did the P30 come with plumbing for a bilge pump originally? I assumed the setup I inherited was original - a manual pump setup and bilge outlet at the port-side rear of the cockpit. Maybe a bad assumption. Mine is a '74, maybe things changed over the production run?
Anyway, sounds like it's not uncommon to have a bilge outlet out the stern vice into the cockpit (no surprise there). As a new owner, just trying to get a sense of what is a reasonable idea from you guys' experience. Anyone else add a thru-hull to accomodate a bilge outlet? I'm nervous putting another hole in the boat, even if it is above the water line! Also, I assume this is not a big ticket item?
Thanks for the responses!
