How many bilge pumps does my X30 have?

I read somewhere that the X10 and X30 have dual bilge pumps - one behind the motor on the drivers side and one in front of the motor somewhere. I can only find the only behind the motor on the drivers side.

My Maristar 230 (2003) has 2. There is a round access cover in the floor just left of the drivers seat. It's in there.

Your bilge rocker switch should have 3 positions, one for the front pump, one for the rear pump, and the middle position is for auto. float to come on if needed.

Hope this helps.

They must have added a second bilge pump in 2003 because my 2002 does not have the one under the circular cover that is just to the left of the drivers seat. That is the access panel for the t-handle threaded plug. Also, my bilge switch has three positions; on-off-auto.

Anyone else with a 2002 X10 or X30 with more than one bilge pump?

Fill the bilge with a garden hose and listen for 2 pumps to come on

Just kidding, of course.

Maybe you only have 1 pump?

2003 X30

I have a 2003 X 30 and only have one factory bilge pump located at what I would assume to be the highest spot in the boat hull. During my quest to feel confident it worked, I dumped my ski locker ballast bag into the center locker where the T handle drain plug is and began to fill the boat. What I can tell you is 325 lbs of water does not make it back to the bilge if the boat is sitting level on the trailer. I put boat on a hill with the plugs in and the bilge rocker in the down (auto) function and the water made is way there and pumped out. Winter project is to add an additional pump to the center ski locker and Barrow one of the ballast bags bent hoses with a one way valve on it.
