Re: How to plumb a washdown pump on a 40 ft sailboat?
I like the idea of sharing an intake thru hull, if you can manage issues raised above. Most, however, are dedicated, which lowers distance and resistance.
My caution would be the pump itself. Most just don't have the power to do a good job and are more trouble than they're worth. You need one to run like a garden hose off the dock to get mud off the chain and anchor. Many trickle and some you can even sense the pump cycle. Hope Santa brought a good one.

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