the dry bilge machine

Dry Bilge on New 60' Hatteras Motor Yacht "Ya Voy": 

Before and After under the Master Stateroom hallway

A Standard Flat Pickup was placed forward of the Rule pump under the master stateroom hallway. The paint was already lifting from exposure to the bilge water. It is also apparent from the "after" picture that this pickup should be moved aft,  closer to the pump. Arid Bilge pickups function best when they are placed in the lowest crevice of any given bilge area. Trace amounts of water will evaporate dry provided there are no slow leaks.
