When we purchased our PY23 in addition to other issues the bilge pump had been removed.
There is and approx. 1/2 hose connected to the cockpit drain and another corrugated hose that went to th cabin floor.
There are four holes on the port side lazerete spaced a few inches apart.
Just wondering what others have for a bilge pump so that I may consider replacing what is missing.
Thanks

My PY26 has a Whale Gusher manual pump installed on the back side of the aft cabin bulkhead in the lazarette.  It utilizes 1-1/2" clear vinyl hose connected to the cockpit drain and 1-1/2" clear vinyl hose going to the bilge.  I also have a 500 gph electric pump with liquid level switch in the bilge that ties into the galley sink drain.

Thanks for the information. I will attempt to find a Whale pump at a reasonable price and may use the sink drain for an additional pump.
I am planning to not have the sink drain through the cockpit drain but will use a separate container for the sink.
We really do not plan to have much use of the sink and I am trying to simplify things a bit.
