Merisirrin pilssipumppu

Water ended up into the footwell is removed with a bucket and a portable manual bilge pump. Installing a fixed bilge pump would have been another option but it wasn’t done as it’s unlikely that Merisirri takes in water that often. Self-bailer weren’t installed into footwell because they may leak some water at slow speeds.
