Hi,

Just so, but well designed is half made. If leakage is time-consuming, I also have flexible emergency plugs, a kit for leakage and other supplies... Last I go flybridge and sit on my dingy and popped champagne. And start dreaming of the next better boat...(Poor humor)

Also possible to use the main machine as an emergency pump, in this discussion for and against see the link. The real thing is that for example my Cummins qsb can pump up to 4200 gallons per hour ...

engines raw water pump emergency pumping
