Fitting Bailing Pump.

Hi guys,
I got a whale gusher urchin pump for christmas (a manual lever bilge pump you fix on your transom, it sucks through a hose and pumps out over the transom).

I am happy enough with where to mount it, but what I am not so keen with is drilling a hole in my wooden floor to feed the hose through.

My plan is to use the biggest hose the pump will accomadate (1 inch I think), and run it to the front of the boat, under the floor there, and then back to the transom.

Do you think this will work?

For some reason I think it might not, possibly because of the weight of water or some other such thing.

My boat is approx 2.5m from the transom to the point I am thinking of, and the same back. So I am looking at a 5m run of 1" hose, what do you think?

Cheers in advance for all help,
Geoff

i had one on an old humber 16 s.i.b ,bolted it to the transom but i was i lucky as i was able to just push the pick up pipe down a hole in the floor near the self bailer ,problem with running the pick up pipe to the front is its a long run and you will have the move the water along it before it goes to the pump ,it would pump it but you may find with the weight of the engine and yourself pumping,, the water will be down at the stern end anyhow ,also it will take a while for the pump to start sucking the water proper as their will be a large air lock in the long pipe .also make sure that when it sucks it cannot suck the floor fabric and stop the flow .if you use 1 inch hose you can push fit a plastic bath overflowfitting over the end to act as a strainer to stop it getting blocked it also gives the pipe a 90 deg angle so you can get the last few drops of water out of the bilge if the pipe lays along the bottom .

Whale pump

He is another option, we just had this whale pump fitted to the transom with a pipe up the transom to the top where it is fitted to a stainless 90 degree bent pipe to off the stern (if that makes sense

Tim, the unit was made by Ribeye during boat prep/layout, using a local stainless company
