Randy,

We live aboard as well as planning to cut dock lines this January for an extended cruise with no return date scheduled. The lithmus test for our bilge system was to put the water hose from the dock in the bilge and let it run to simulate a broken water line while hooked to city water. We did not want to return from work to find a mast sticking out of the water in our slip. The 1700 GPH bilge pump failed the test and that is what drove the pump size specification. You are welcome to write if you have questions or come visit if you are in the area.
Don and Lana

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
