    Wouldn't it be nice to be warned if your boat was taking on a dangerous amount of water? While many newer boats have bilge high water alarms installed, chances are if your boat is more than 10 yrs old you are missing this critical safety component. The only warning you may have of excess water in your bilge is the fact that your bilge pump is running continuously. But if your engines are running can you hear your bilge pumps?

    The thought of servicing a bilge pump is enough to make even the most savvy mechanic shiver. By their nature it is hard to access them on most boats. With this bracket assembly we will make that job much easier.
    You will need a piece of aluminum stock 6 inches wide, at least 12 inches long and approximately 3/8 inch thick. The actual length will be determined by the mounting method you choose as we discuss below.
