your bilge pump will handle it.
about that... I better have someone on deck pumping... or a nice size bucket next to me. I was surprised to find no electric bilge pump in the bilge of my boat. As in there was never one installed, and no real means to install one without tons of work. We have a basic manual bilge, but the hose run is at least 15 feet. No electrical within 5 feet of the bilge. I would have to cut a hole in the boat for a pump out... Stupid. I need to do so much work on my boat =) This thread is for a later day. Thanks.

If those hoses are for a pressurized fresh water system, they will almost certainly leak. I found that out two summers ago after a lot of trial and error (mostly error) and a long conversation with a knowledgable boat-plumbing-guy. You need reinforced hose or the barbs will always leak. I changed mine and haven't lost a drop since.

The fresh water system looks like it has not been used for a long time. I am sure it will be another project. I am slowly trying to get the boat into shape. Thanks for the tip on the hose. I am almost certain that the pump is for pressurized water at the sink.

Really? Like it is dangerous? Should I remove it, change it out, take action of some kind? Now you have me nervous.
