Bilge Pump for C&C

Just bought a 1985 C&C 29. It has a manual bilge pump only, strange as that may seem. The bilge is small, but I believe for safety I should install an automatic bilge pump, but with small space and little hose exit space, this could be a real problem. Anyone have a similar problem? I assume all 29's were sold this way, so hopefully someone has addressed this issue. Any input will be helpful.

On my C&C 27', the technical bilge is a little bitty area underneath the front portion of the engine. However, I still have 2 electric bilge pumps to suppliment the manual one. Both are right in front of the "dip bilge", one being automatic. There was still enough room to mount them both because the companionway stairs fit over this area.

Hopefully, someone with a 29' will come along with specific instructions, but if not, it might help familiarize others by posting a photo if you have one. And yes, the more bilge pumps the merrier. Congrats on your purchase, by the way!

Hey Mike - try the C&C group at C&C Yachts - C&C Photo Album & Resource Center

There is an email discussion list that is very active and will bring you a lot of good responses from other C&C owners and C&C 29 owners. On left hand menu is a SUBSCRIBE button - is free too

Make sure that you leave the manual bilge pump in place. Electric pumps will not work once the batteries are flooded.

In Canada, manual bilge pumps are mandatory.
