Mid bilge pump on 530 carver pilothouse

Postby daqcraig » June 13th, 2018, 9:50 am

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!

Nothing on these boats is easy to get at.
