I have 2 bilge electric pumps & 1 manual pickup under there. The electric pumps are routed on each of the settees on the inbrd corner tucked out of the way from the access hatches. They both go overbrd just behind the aft bulkhead & just under the bumper rubber port & stbrd sides. I made all the pumps have there own outlets cause I wanted to know which ones were working cause the second backup pump's pickup is higher than primary's one. The manual pickup goes to it's stock location out the back. If I have to use the manual pump with 2 electric pumps in there, back flow will be the least of my worries!I had a question for windyway who mounted the bilge pumps in front of the s/b trunk. How did you route the bilge hoses? Out the back to the bilge makes sense but the only question I have is whether there would be too much back flow when the pump stops from that long of a run.
What type of angles do you want specifically? If I do lots of pictures of the windlass install I'll put it under it's own thread.windy way , if you get a chance i would like to see a better picture of the traveler set up ... also if you do the anchor set up please take lots of pictures .

Sorry I'm a bit slow this AM. Are you using aluminum tubing for the vertical aft support? I think I'll need a picture. The purpose of a 2x4 is when your rolling the mast back to position it into the mast foot the 2x4 has a broader surface for cushioning against the transom than a pipe would. Also it allows the addition of 2 pieces that fit into the gutter drain that keeps it from moving away.yeah you should do a seperate post on your mast support .. i was trying to figure out how to keep my pvc support from sliding 2'PVC worked but i was really nerveous so i will be going to aluminum tubing
Your traveller is over the transom? Why did you chose to do it that way? I have been watching the local shows for a traveller for my Spirit and I am currently planning on mounting it above the cabin, where the companion way hatch top endsHere you go, view is looking aft.
