I had a similar idea and am planning a Sureflo Pro Blaster II. I am mounting it in the cockpit and hard wiring it to the power source. I need about 4 feet of lift and these pumps are self priming to 6'. I will use a temporary hose with quick connect for a pick-up and conventional hose for discharge.

As an aside, I'm thinking about rigging a method to quick connect to the fresh water tank through some type of diverter. It might be nice to 1) quickly empty the fresh water tank for winter or when the water is getting old, and 2) have the ability to use my pump as a FW washdown.

In short, I have a similar plan as you, but am hard mounting and wiring the pump.
