Actually sounds like a fun project.

Assuming genset or inverter, might even consider a 115V pump, in a Rubbermaid (or whatever) box. Holes in the box for power cord and hoses (innies and outies), drop one (weighted, maybe with course filter) over the side for supply, use the other with a squeeze-grip nozzle at the anchor...
