Several of Bosworth’s Guzzler foot pumps are ideally suited for use as onboard bilge pumps in kayaks. Attached to the bulkhead, the pump remains securely with the kayak, so that you never have to worry about retrieving a lost pump from the water.
Each of the pumps recommended below is manufactured from rugged but lightweight Delrin plastic, and weighs less than 2 lbs. Designed for efficiency, these foot-operated Guzzlers can transfer a quart of water every 5 strokes. Equipped with a lightweight spring, they are easy to operate from a sitting position.
The video links below show how some of our customers have mounted these Guzzlers in their kayaks as well as what it’s like to operate them. Additionally, you can read the Sea Kayaker magazine article Foot Powered Bilge Pump , to see details of how one user installed a Guzzler in his kayak.
