Advise please. I would like to add a bilge pump to my 70 nauset. Where should it go? how tt run an antenna cable from console to aft starboard rail. Further, I plan to add a Tempo 28 gal tank under the driver seat and run a fuel line to join that from the tanks under the console. How to do this?

How does the steering get from the console
to the motor?

On my '98 Montauk (same hull, more or less)
there's a tunnel down the middle of the boat
from the console to the transom. The blige
pump is in the transom end of the tunnel
(lowest place in the boat). The VHF coax
is fished through the tunnel (dry the tunnel
out first). The fuel line drops through
the deck into the tunnel.

thanks for response. My steering runs thru the tunnel. By dropping the fuel line into the tunnel I assume means cutting a hole in the deck to access it.
What bilge pump fits into the aft end of the tunnel? There doesn't seem to be much room.
thanks, pete

My fuel line goes into the tunell through a drilled hole with a plastic bushing. I think
I were install one, I'd drill the hole,
saturate the plywood with epoxy several times
and then install the bushing.

Be careful not to drill into the steering,
or to drip epoxy all over it.

I have a Rule 500 gpm pump in the well.
But remember my boat is 28 years newer than
yours, so yours may be different.
