    What should I use to Glue bilge pump down?

    I did away with siphon tube and I am going to just glue a Rule 550g bilge pump in the lowest point in the hull, what is best glue to do it?

    Clean the area, Scratch it up a little with sandpaper, clean it again then use 3m 5200 Wal-Mart (marine section) and HomeDepot have it

    5200 is probably better than what I used. I cleaned my hull and used silicone. Pump has not moved in years.

    Same stuff I used to reseal the pump shoe and transom? I guess it works but it seems so rubbery!

    Ive used clear silicone, just make sure you don`t go overboard and let it squish into the pump intake/impeller area (bilge pump).

    The other option is to make a braket out of aluminium.
