I think that sounds like a reasonable layer of security, especially if you can use it for other purposes (firefighting, washing dishes...)

The "T" set up Denise mentioned is your most economical and least space taking option. I've done this in all my previous wooden boats and a 3-way valve keeps both engine cool and bilge empty. That option with 2 electrical bilge-pumps should give you enough time to get of the boat in your life-raft B-4 debris starts plugging it up. You can get a nice cast-bronze strainer to buy some more time.
Hence my undertone in the above, your (OP) proposed set-up is overkill, especially for a small boat like yours. What a waste of resources and did you consider the HP that set-up requires?

I think an extra special size ClamSeal is called for then he can block the hole and won't need a pump.

I have a vision of a pulse jet with the pressure waves providing the pumping action. Home made jet & pulsejet engine
