F21 bilge pump

Postby newt2u » Sat Feb 01, 2020 3:12 pm

I wanted to get some advice on positioning an electric bilge pump on my Freedom 21. My only through hulls are in the forward cabin but apart from the routing of cables this is isolated from the main cabin by bulkheads. Ditto the under cockpit bilge, although there is a 1” hole maybe used previously for gas pipes electrics between that and the main cabin. Both holes a long way above the lowest point.

What have other F21 owners done?

Mine runs through the starboard locker and drains into the cockpit to drain out the scuppers. Works fine since I trailer sail and mainly drain the bilge after it rains.

Thanks for your response. However, I intend to keep my F21 on a mooring over the summer months and the most likely problem would be the log wheel in the storage in the cabin, so thats one potential site. Over the winter and we’ve had a lot of rain and I have had about an inch or two of rain below the cockpit, through the lockers, so another potential site. Maybe I need to fit more than one.
