Question P-30 Bilge pump replacement ?

I have a 79 P-30 #1143 with a whale /gusher bilge pump on the starboard rear side of the cockpit. Has anyone ever installed an electric/automatic bilge pump either in addition to or instead of the manual pump ? I sometimes forget (more and more) to pump out the bilge and then when under sail in moderate to heavy conditions end up with sloshing water under the port bunk making a mess out of all my spare parts and anything else I've stowed down there.
There's not much room to work with where the main cabin manual uptake is. and then there's the separate uptake in the engine compartment ???
