Hi Jonathon,

Avoid putting holes in your deck if you can help it mate. If you don't seal the hole properly you will end up with water seeping in between the deck and gel coat (osmosis) Normally there's a bilge under the engine well (used for storing the fuel tank) this is lower than the deck and that's obviously where the pump should go. Screwed to a wooden board or something.
You could fix a bilge pump to your deck with Araldite/resin but remember a bilge pump will need not get every last drop of water out, use a scoop or sponge for that if needed. I leave the bung out when stored up on the trailer.

If you do fit it to your deck, you'll need to protect the pump from accidental damage somehow too .

Cheers
Martin
