In an earlier post I asked about placement of a bilige on my 18ft outrage. Can somebody help me out by taking a picture of where theirs is located...

Thank you.

No photo needed just your eyes!
Take a real close look aft just below the transom well on the starboard side (right side) you will see a place in the deck where it has been formed out below the surface into a "well" and your cables/wiring come forth to attach to the motor and battery --- in that little cubicle is the place to mount your bilge pump -- you go find a nice one to fit without screwing up the cables and wires meaning not to broad or tall (at least 750 to 1000 gallons) -- then you screw down its base (use 3M-4200 to seal the screws)make the necessary electrical hook ups --- snap the pump back on its base and bing bang you have installed your bilge pump (just follow the manufactures instructions on installation) --- good luck and have fun ---

Following pretty much Larry's instructions (above), I installed a little Rule 750GPH automatic on/off bilge pump inside that starboard side sump on my O/R 18. It's positioned to the center of the drain hole, which I think I recall is the lowest area of the sump. Run a length of bilge hose out of the sump with the gas line, cables and wiring. I vent the hose into the transom area but in an emergency can reach back and position the hose end overboard. Get you some good marine 12 or 16 ga. three-wire cable, and run the leads up to the console where you can install a three-position toggle switch (left-"auto on"; center-"off"; right-"manual on"). Now you're in business. Might want to add a rubber "bootee" for the toggle switch to keep out the spray.
