    Best place to install bilge pump in a 2001 GP1200R Hull

    Looking to install a bilge pump in my ski. Any ideas on the most efficient and best spot to put it in? And is there any way to install the bracket without drilling holes? Thank You Click image for larger version.

    imo under the intermediate shaft . get a 1300r pump it fits under. do not drill any holes , you glue the blue piece using 5200 to the hull anywhere you decide to installed ,the pump mounts on that blue piece.
    riva use to sell a aluminum bracket that was bolted to the two bottom bolts on the intermediate shaft .
    i got one of these but im keeping for a future candidate.

    THE GP1300R has a factory bilge pump which is what he is referring to. I bought a Rule 360 gph pump with the float switch on amazon for about $40. Most people use the Rule 550 gph which is the exact size as the 360 gph but more expensive (more flow too). I figure I could save $$ and buy one with less flow. Am I really going to be pumping more than 6 gallons per minute... I will install mine with 5200 glued to the hull in the rear section. Still trying to figure out if I want to have a dedicated thru hull spigot or just Tee with Jetwork valve into stock bilge location... or maybe make have the jetwork valve have its own spigot.. not sure yet.

    This is the one I got:
    http://www.amazon.com/Rule-24-35A-Me...+pump+rule+360

    This is the one most people recommend:
    http://www.amazon.com/Rule-Submersib...+pump+rule+550

    I guess it is rule 500 gph not 550...

    I would stick with Rule brand as they have been around for ever and are Tried and Trusted... Don't want to fish your ski from the lake because you wanted to save $15 in the pump.

    I have mine where the old oil fill was for the 2-stroke oil. That way I know when it is taking on water
