Both. Or, an electric pump and a bucket.

An electric bilge pump is awfully handy if you're trying to sail to safety, or fix the leak, while the boat is trying to become one with the bottom. On the other hand, a 5-gallon plastic bucket in the hands of a scared sailor is one hell of a pump.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
