Bilge Pump

Hello, I am wondering where I can mount a bilge pump on a Tornado 5.2 that does not have a bilge well. Any ideas?

We dont have a well either. It's just flat on the floor a bit in front of the single elephant bailer. As you'd expect it doesnt get all the water out. We fitted it more to help out if we got stuffed and had to empty the boat without having much in the way of an engine at the time (75hp now 100hp) Its a 4000 g/hr Rule and is excellent fitted through a carling switch on the console.

New boat is here, very happy!

As Simon on our Tornado 5.3 we dont have a well either. Again It's just flat on the floor but on the other side from the elephant bailer. Works well just on a switch on the consol. We have managed to kick one and break it as its not got much protection. Kitten put a post up some time back about a metal plate they had one the race boat to protect their pump. I think this would be a good move.
