Re: Cockpit Drains

Routing bilge pumps to the cockpit has only one advantage, you'll know when it's pumping.

You'll know because suddenly all that nasty stuff in your bilge is washing over your toes.

If there were anything I'd do regarding your drainage I'd change that - the rest will do for all but extremes - and then a bucket will work unless you get pooped by a huge wave.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
