I was replacing my 2 7x11 hatches that I finally found at Great Lakes Skipper website. Anyone with this boat knows it almost impossible finding replacement parts.. Finally got me 4 Rabud scuppers too..

Anyway, back on topic. When I used my fish box drain pump, the thought crossed my mind again. WHY is that pump soo dang Loud?

According to the book, it's only a 270gph pump.

Is this type pump actually a mercerator pump and that's why it's soo loud?

If so it seems pointless since there is a strainer that seems to catch all the debris which it does quite well.

Anyone ever replaced their's? Mine is the original 1997 pump, still working fine but not sure if it was always this loud.
