Somebody was too exuberant pumping the bilge, and the pump finally broke. Any one had any luck with replacements the fit the cockpit opening?

Thanks, Gary

We rebuilt ours last winter. Ours is a Henderson MKV (MK5) Underdeck (Henderson Mark 5). I wrote down BP0535 as a part number and Service Kit AK8050 as the rebuild kit. Henderson is now Whale Pump whalepumps.com I had to look around online a little to fine the "vertical" mount version that matched what we have.

Good Luck,

Brian: thanks for the info. From what I've seen online, the Whale Gusher Urchin pump is pretty close to the original. Time to place an order.
