Clever idea, but put me down as skeptical! Has anyone used one?
Drainman Bilge Pump
It didn't reassure me when the first review I looked at referred to a using it in a "gondola"!:laugher
I suppose the real question is: "Why?!?"

I'm sure there's a market for it, but if you've already got at least one automatic bilge pump fitted for the times you go out sailing, a gadget like this isn't really needed.

Interesting....I have no power or electric bilge pump.
Will wait to launch and see what the wave action is inside the new marina I am using this year but this is an option. Only challenge is how to get the hose inside the boat to the bilge.

A friend enjoyed good success using this device on a boat he kept on a mooring.
Good to hear. Seems like that is the intended market, where you would not have shore power to charge batteries and would generally have plenty of wind/wave action.
