This is a picture of our new emergency bilge pump that Chris wanted me to post. He discussed it's installation on the Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) discussion board, but couldn't post a picture there, so here it is! He designed and had built a bracket that attaches to the engine and holds both the emergency bilge pump and an engine-driven refrigeration compressor. I'm glad to say that all the belts between the equipment and the engine are aligned and running nicely!


  1. Nice Pump! Nobody agrees on the necessity of one of those...until the need (water) rises. Same catagory as life rafts and EPIRBs; Something to spend a lot of time and $$$ on, then even more time and $$$ making sure you never have to use them. Well done.


  2. Snif, and now you've left. We're very jealous and will live vicariously through you and through that guy Steve who just posted before us.

  3. Hey, Bob and Kitty,

    We're down the Keys, where are you? We looked forward to meeting up for a drink and some laughs. We'll have to catch you later.
