DocBlake Posted August 21, 2015 Share #1 Posted August 21, 2015 I'm building the POF model Armed Virginia Sloop. The vessel had two elm tree pumps to keep the bilge dry. Would those low-tech pumps have required a lower deck well to protect the bottom end from damage as a chain pump would require? I'd like to add one to the model, combined with a shot locker.
