The venerable old P30 simply does not have enough space/room to install a BIG pump in its very shallow bilge. Have you considered to mount a piston/diaphragm pump in the 'wet locker' in the head (behind the fold down shelf) and simply put (only) a stainer/hose/pump switch in the 'bilge'?

Its VERY important to keep the bilge of a P30 very dry ... as the base of the compression post also includes a wooden wedge - under all that FRG tabbing in the bilge; and, if that wedge begins to rot the main bulkhead will shift and will no longer adequately support the MAST.
