What to Do With a Broken Water Pump?

Reprinted with permission from Bob Pone, www.diybob.com/hottip.htm

Your engine starts overheating, you go below and find that your raw water intake pump has become terminally ill and has stopped working. Panic sets in because the fish dinner you were dreaming about is as far away as your home port.

Not to worry! With a little imagination and some tools you will be on your way. Remove your galley's electric pressure water pump or your electric bilge pump or any other electric pump that you can put into service and rig it between the raw water intake and your engine's cooling system, bypassing the broken raw water intake pump.

This should get you to that fish dinner.
