Re: Went to the boat for a sail..and its Flooded!!!

Two auto bilge pumps are mandatory in my book, the second float switch being just a few inches above the first. Both pump intakes should be at the bottom of the bilge. Plus a manual hand pump.

For real safety, put an alarm on another float switch with a buzzer in the cockpit. Good for you when underway. Better when those around the marina complain about your buzzer and someone comes to see why its going off.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
