I have a manual bilge pump in the cockpit that would be far more effective than a bucket. While I am assuming the comment was mostly a joke, speaking from a practical standpoint it would be awfully difficult to use a bucket until the boat was half sunk. Otherwise I'd be going down to the ER, scooping up water in the bucket, climbing out of the ER, dumping overboard...repeat. Not all that practical!

That said, can we change the subject back to what a reasonable setup might look like if the factory setup is truly subpar - which I am assuming is the case.
