Take a look at the bilge pump. The pump will pop out of the base. You may just be plugged up. You can also take a garden hose and back-flush the outlet. When I got my '77, the pump wouldn't do anything and I had to do both to get it to work,

If the pump is shot, you can always buy a cheap on/off pump at Wal-Mart and wire it in so you can use the boat.

Got it going this morning. Great afternoon on th lake with the kids until the battery died. More to fix but it's a brand new battery. Thanks again for the help. The bilge was clogged and the switch connection was bad.

Definite progress. Have you checked if the alternator is charging?

I'm pretty sure it isn't. I hardly trust the gages but the volt meter was reading 11.5 all day.

Simple enough to fire it up in the driveway and put a voltmeter on it and see what you get. Should be kicking out 13.5+ volts. You can turn on the blower, and your now working bilge pump to see if it slows down the charge.
