Installing the Bilge Pumps

Our bilge is about 4' deep so we wanted to be able to easily remove the bilge pumps for cleaning and servicing. Bilge pumps are something you never think about removing, but if you've ever had to service/change a pump in a deep bilge, you know how fun crawling in head first through a 2' hole to undo the screws can be.  To avoid that from ever happening again, Matt came up with the rig below:

Just a piece of aluminum flat bar and a heavy duty broom holder to snap it to the shower sump box!
