Mid bilge pump on 530 carver pilothouse

I need to replace my mid bilge pump on my 2001 530 pilot house . My mechanic is telling me it is located directly under two AC units and will be a major deal replacing the pump . Can anyone shed light on this ? Surely such an important pump wouldn't be placed in an impossible to get to place ??

Thanks for your help

Welcome aboard!

I can't help with the location and issues surrounding that location in your boat.

I do however take difference with your "Surely...." statement. I think the designers of these things take a sick enjoyment in locating things in almost impossible to reach places.

Good Luck!

Yep totally agree seems no thought is made to access many things but it looks good on paper!

Nothing on these boats is easy to get at.
