If they're aerator pumps they have to be in the bilge/below the waterline because they can't pump air (i.e. NOT self priming). I've never seen pumps that look like that though.

If you went to impeller pumps you could replumb the hose and mount them on the transom, higher up since they can pump air and self prime.

You could replace them with something like a Rule 1,100 GPH aerator for pretty cheap. Aerator pumps get a bad rap but I've been pretty satisfied with mine (Tsunami 800 GPH). Also, if I have a failure then I can just grab a new one at Wal-Mart or Academy for like $30.
