      Builderdude, someday you are going to learn how to do a decent job of fabrication and assembly. You could probably market that mount and make a boat buck or two. Beautiful work.

        Thanks guys!
        It was suggested by other BOC members long before I did it, one of the reasons this site kicks azz!

          I thought about that but I would still need to get a float switch under there. I looked at the Whale Bilge IC pump https://www.whalepumps.com/marine/pr...dlyID=Bilge-IC But is was a little price right now. I have many other projects I want to tackle.

            Thanks for the additional pictures. Those help a lot. My may was thinking to bend the aluminum to contour the bilge area. But I guess I really don't need to.
