Bilge pump question

My PO removed the manual bilge pump and the associated hoses. I'm interested in putting an automatic one in, maybe with an on/off switch. I see that the bilge water is intended to be pumped into the cockpit back by the scuppers. My bilge water is really not something anyone would want near them, so I really don't want bilge water coming out into the cockpit. I get water from various leaks I'm always running down, as well as some coolant from the FWC system. Also, the icebox empties into it, and it looks like if I were to put the shower head back in it would drain there too.

I'm thinking about putting a thru-hull out the stern, akin to the raw water out from the engine. Curious what the P30 community has done in terms of bilge pumps and where you have it coming out.

Thanks!
