The romance of sailing......

I purchased Sarah's sailboat last month and finally got the water pumped out of it. The bilge pump worked well except for one tiny detail. Each pump = 1 quart of liquid; therefore 4 pumps = 1 gallon. Multiply this by 6,000 gallons of rainwater in the boat = 24,000 pumps "by hand" to empty it. Thank goodness for electric sump pumps.
