Bilge Pump Placement

Recommended Posts

The bulge pump in my v-drive was installed on a raised portion of the floor, so it would take at least 3+ inches of water for it to trip.

I removed the mounting screws, and have a good place to remount it where is is lower.

I am sensitive about re-screwing it into the floor, so two questions -

1. How thick is the hull in the area under the engine - how long of screws can i use?

2. Has anyone mounted with industrial velcro or heavy double stick tape?

The area where I found is pretty clean and I can scrub it before sticking the velcro down.

no screws!!!

clean out the exisiting holes, make sure they are dry, and place a dab of silicone to keep water out.

some double sided tape, silicon glue to secure the new pump. it doesn't take much to keep it in place.
