Bilge Pumps c. 1840 - 1850 American Merchant ships

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for images of bilge pumps that may have been used on the oyster schooners of the mid 1840s.  Oertling's booklet on Bilge Pumps omits any info. between 1790 - 1890.    I've seen some double (metal) tube pumps in earlier years, but Chapelle's plans (yes, I know his deck arrangements are suspect) show a single "hole".  Does anyone have any images or references that may help?
