As the Atalanta has compartments that are effectively water tight what do other owners do about a bilge pump? The most likely damage for those who sail bow first will be the forward cabin area which is separated from the rest of the boat by the main bulkhead. In the past I have just had a large hand held pump and some collapsible buckets. My hand pump discharge pipe is hors de combat and I can not find a suitable replacement so am pondering what to do. Whilst it would be easy to mount a pump that operates from the cockpit it would in reality only remove water from the the engine compartment which is the least likely to get damaged on impact.
