Since I'm starting out on building a small sailing boat, I thought it might be useful for others to learn from my experience.
This will be a log of the building project, and any problems and solutions along the way.

Start of bilge pump I installation.
This is the pump, with the newly cast pivot and the removable handle. It's on the base I made for it. It's out of the way, under the seat. And there's plenty of room to pump the handle with the floorboards in place.
More pics will follow when I have installed the hose. The inlet will be across the boat on the Lee side so that I can pump from the windward side. There's only one pump so if I'm on the other tack I will need to heave to.
