I am adding a bilge pump to my skiff. Have one up front, forw foot is the lowest point at rest, but I want to add one to rear for pumping out water underway. I have an automatic low profile pump. Should I screw it to the plywood hull to get a low as possible or attache to stringer?
While drafting this message I realized that getting all the water out is probably the job of the forward pump at rest and if I can't get it all out underway, then "tuff-tacos"--opinions? advice?
I'm worried about screwing it to hull as plywood not that thick--if screws go through hull what do I do? Is that even bad (assumeing I grind flush on outside)?
