Fitting Bailing Pump.
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,
