I have 2 bilge electric pumps & 1 manual pickup under there. The electric pumps are routed on each of the settees on the inbrd corner tucked out of the way from the access hatches. They both go overbrd just behind the aft bulkhead & just under the bumper rubber port & stbrd sides. I made all the pumps have there own outlets cause I wanted to know which ones were working cause the second backup pump's pickup is higher than primary's one. The manual pickup goes to it's stock location out the back. If I have to use the manual pump with 2 electric pumps in there, back flow will be the least of my worries!
