Hi all, interesting thread. I am getting ready to replace my primary pump and float switch, and will also add a larger "de-watering" pump. I did this on my last boat, adding a discharge thru-hull high up on the port side. I also tied in a 12v horn that would sound when the big pump went on. I like the idea of having the larger pump discharge into the cockpit, but have one reservation. If you get pooped will the additional water in the cockpit flow down the discharge hose and down into the bilge? I guess you still need to loop it above where it discharges into the cockpit.
Does this sound reasonable to you guys?
