How to Repair a Manual Bilge Pump

A big part of living on a boat is maintenance and repair. Last week our bilge pump on the 27′ Oday sprang a leak. We ordered a repair kit from West Marine (about $35). A few days later the kit arrived and Brian got to put his handy man skills to work. If you don’t like fixing things (or you don’t love someone who likes fixing things), you may want to reconsider the choice to own a boat.

Watch the short video below to see how we did.
