On my Moonraker that I'm rebuilding, I installed the bilge pump right at the stern with a float switch. I've wired up through the main switch panel so that you can activate the bilge pump circuit as soon as the boat is in the water. I've also located the float switch under an inspection cover so that, periodically, you can manually activate it just to check that it's working.

With my dual battery system, on all my boats I've installed a VSR so that when underway, once the starter battery is full, the house battery gets automatically charged.

The wiring on the Moonraker was also a tragic affair... I stripped out everything and started from scratch.
