Ready to Launch Tomorrow - and then i test the bilge pump - no go

Recommended Posts

I was psyched to get the boat in the water tomorrow.  I had the 300 hour work done this year on my 2011 246 SSi with Merc so i was hoping for a relatively problem free year.  I brought boat home today, put a nice fresh coat of 303 on the covers, put all the stuff where it needs to go and went through checklist. 

I put water in the bilge - no bilge pump - either by float or switch.  Checked circuit breakers.  No noise or anything.

How is one supposed to get at that?

Thanks for any suggestions!

So after reading these posts I just went out and checked.   Wiring seemed AOK.  

Flipped the bilge swift and now it works.  

I Had left about 4" of water in bilge for about 2 hours.  Could that have loosened something that was bound up?
