I decided to install an electric bilge pump. Following my typical process, I researched on line what was available. I found several options for both a manual or electric pumps. The manual pump was the leading choice for many months, as it makes more sense on a small sail boat. But… I wanted again to challenge myself with some complexity and also thought if I was busy with the sailing on a day with spray breaking over the bow then an automatic bilge pump might be a good idea too.
