That's what I am looking for. It's kind of a big black rocker switch with some little red "on" lights. The switch for the bilge is a two way. The wires are there, but the bilge pump auto-switch is not a float but something called a Water-Witch. Its got something that senses the water. Beats me but any how, it calls for a 3 way. This is a new install. The boat did not have a bilge bump. The bilge is kind of a tiny spot to work in. I do like a manual on/off and automatic on a bilge pump. John

You need an SPDT center-off switch. They are in the West
Marine catalog as a close match for the OEM switch. Or you
could use half of an OEM anchor/running light switch.
I think the West part is from Cole Hersee, but I'm not sure
and the West catalog is 30 miles away.

The switches you want are on the top of page 425 of the new
West Catalog. They are indeed made by Cole Heree. The one
your want is West p/n 7808215 CH p/n 58332-21-BP.

Bingo, that's it, same switch does the running and anchor lights. The other two unused switches are 2 way. One is labeled "Bilge" and has wires from it to the bilge. We will have to pull one from the sensor to the new 3 way switch. Thanks again, John
