Bilge pump for Bristol 32

Jan. 2, 2008

My 1971 Bristol 32 appears to come without an automatic/electric bilge pump.

Does anyone else have such a pump, and is your discharge above the waterline through a factory installed thru hull. JRB

Jim,

I installed a high capacity electric bilge pump and float switch on my B32. I attached it to a long piece of aluminum angle stock with tie wraps. The top of the stock is attached to the the boat's shower water pump wood base assembly. This allows the pump to be easily lifted out of the bilge for cleaning, inspection, etc. I ran the electric pump's discharge hose to the the existing thru-hull on the stern of the boat. This was done by inserted a tee in the existing hose that is utilized for the manual pump. The system works well.

Regards, Ken

Mine's a '75 and it was factory-equipped with an automatic bilge pump. The switch is even part of the Bristol electrical panel. Discharge is well above waterline, out the lower part of the reverse transom via a factory installed thru-hull, port side. Another thru-hull in same location, but starboard, is for the exhaust.

My 75 also has a factory set up with electrical panel switch. Pump connects thru a gated tee with the cockpit drains to go overboard on the port side
