You'd be better off using a diaphragm-type bilge pump, like a Whale Gusher. Major advantages, it moves a lot more water, it can run dry without many issues, and it will pass some debris and small objects, which most of the sink type faucet pumps will not. They also make foot pumps for galley sinks that are smaller diaphragm pumps that would also work quite well.. They're even better in some ways, even though they have smaller capacity, since you don't have to touch them with your hands... you could, in theory, be pumping the shower sump while showering...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
