stops from that long of a run.
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!
