Re: Corondo 25 questions
Bubble's covered it well.. one thought (given your beginner's status) with regard to your electrical issue.. the bilge pump is likely wired direct to the battery. The panel is probably fed from a "1-both-2" switch that may not be clearly visible. Hunt around for that and make sure this is not in the "off" position. It could even be in the cockpit locker. It may be as simple as that.
