Hello, It looks like this has not been used in a few years. I will give it a try. I just acquired a PT 35 sundeck. It is in bad shape, it was left setting for 10 years. it is on the hard and someone left the aft hatch open so I have a lot of water in the bilge and the pumps don't work. WHERE are they located. HELP

I have two automatic and one manual. The primary is below the galley, there is a hatch there. The second automatic and the manual are located in the engine room, just aft of the forward bulkhead. Easy to find, pull up floor boards.

Interestingly, mine require the bilge pump breaker to be on, not hard wired to the battery.

Bilge Pump Locations PT35

I'm sure no two PT35's have bilge pumps installed the same. I have one low profile Whale automatic under the galley sole, one forward of the engine in the engine room and one pick up strainer and float switch mounted under the transmission with a remote self priming pump. I also have a manual Whale Gusher mounted at the lower helm.
What year is your PT and how is she powered?
Best of luck with her.

One of ours is in the engine room as described by Eric. I know there is a pick up for one under the hatch in the galley but the actually pump might be there. I just can't picture where the second one is. The pick up for the primary is at the hatch in the sole of the aft cabin. At the base of the stairs.

The main pump has two switches that have to be on. (This is the setup on our boat but again they vary!) One on the main panel at knee height at the nav station and the other on an accessory panel above the nav station next to the engine controls.

Good luck.

Had an idea for you. The overboard discharge for my bilge pumps (both) is on the port side basically under where the side door is. If you can find this discharge point from inside the engine room you can trace the hoses to the pumps.

Again good luck.

And congratulations!

A big thanks

First of all I would like to thank all of you for the help. A little background on the boat. It came from California in 2005 and was never put in the water in Florida and set in the boat yard for the last 10 years. The owner got hurt soon after getting the boat. I have my work cut out for me.
It is a PT35 sundeck with galley up. The first thing I had to do was pump a lot of water out. It was up to the bottom of the engines. It has twin Perkins 210. The port engine is frozen. Most of the wood in side is in fair shape, by owning a marine trader I know how that goes. The owner replace all the side windows with Plexiglass, so I will have to have new one made. I feel the I can Put lot of labor and some $ into it and have a very nice home. I got the boat for less then 5k.
I do have a few other questions, with twins what is the fuel burn at cruse of 10 to 12 knots?
Is there a possibility of finding who made the windows?
Thanks for every thing.

we have those engines and cruise around 8.5 knots at about 4 GPH. Going much faster is going to fire up the turbos and you will burn a lot more fuel.

Did they leave in the window frames? We replaced one of the pieces of glass and it was quite simple to remove and was not expensive to have made at a local glass shop.

sounds like a great project.

No He took the frames out and filled in the area with wood strips and added the glass to the out side. And of coarse he used 5200 to hold every thing together. I may just make some frames out of stainless I do have a good tig welder.

Hi All. Well I have been going over the boat making list of thing to get done.
A few questions. What are the fuel tanks made of? do they have any problem leaking?
I would welcome any help that you may have of any known problems. I know about the windows and will be working on them. I have a survey from 10 years ago and the boat has set for the last 8 years with nothing done. that's where I'm starting. I got about 100 gals of fuel that need to come out.

here are window photos. the fixed piece of glass is just glued in there. There is supposed to be a rubber piece glued over it but we haven't put it back yet since we replaced the sliding piece. The fixed piece pops out and then the sliding piece can be removed.

For a different tack, consider using it for a cabin instead (seriously).

If one engine runs there's a generator and hot water. Pour a pad on someone's back forty and continue with a car port roof, and solar panels, rain catching? Bring in a backhoe one day to lay you out a septic field?

Find some buddies to share the clubhouse, and if enough of us rescue these rotten old woodies, "...they may think it's a movement.." as Arlo'd say.

A trailer park for the ages, boys.

Nothing is new under the sun.
Barcelona harbor in New York ( Lake Erie) has a line up of about 10 or more old boats, trawlers, tugs, etc. They are perched on the grassy shore. Some with nice decks built around them. We think they have water, electric and sewer run out to them. Not a bad idea, when all else fails.

Hi Pineapple Girl. Well other then getting it cleaned up and checking out the motors that about it. I'm just trying to find the best way to pull the port motor for overhaul. Any Ideas or the best way to do it in the boat.

I also made the mistake letting other know I do marine repairs.
