Shaft Pump?

I am installing a new engine in my Nor’Sea 27 and I think I would like to install some sort of pump, either belt driven or something that fixes directly to the shaft for an emergency bilge or fire pump. I looked at the Erickson pumps but they have no way to attach a hose on the pickup side. They move a whole lot of water but only when it gets as high as the shaft. I want to be able to suck water from the bilge or from over the side. Anyone have any ideas?

Shaft Pump?

My engine is raw water cooled and I added another valve on top of my sea-**** that I could use in an emergency. I can also rinse with fresh water every now and then.(poor mans fresh water cooling).It is a tee on top of the sea-**** followed by another valve with about a five foot piece of hose coiled up.-thomas

Shaft Pump?

GROCO “SSC” - Engine Flush & Emergency Bilge Pump Kit

Intended for installation into the top of any existing seacock, “SSC” provides easy access to the cooling system for routine maintenance, or for emergency bilge pumping.
Once the seacock is closed, the quick release plug in the flush kit can be easily removed, enabling the connected engine to function as a high capacity bilge pump.
The (included) service adaptor provides an easy connection for dockside fresh water flushing, or adding antifreeze for winterization.

Shaft Pump?

Thank you for the info. I''ll check it out.
I probably did a bad job of explaining it the first time but what I''m thinking about is a really high capacity pump which I can drive with the engine by way of a belt or something. I don''t think the waterpump on the engine is able to move enough water to do alot.
