The AquaBound BilgeMaster Kayak Bilge Pump is a high efficiency bilge pump designed to pump 1 gallon of water in less that 8 strokes. The Bilge Master has a stainless steel piston rod for durability and its high density rubber valve system offers a tight seal for greater efficiency. The high-visibility orange foam sleeve allows the BilgeMaster to float so you don't have to worry if it goes overboard.

I bought this thinking I'd never use it. I was mistaken. My husband capsized his kayak and it quickly filled with water. I offered him the use of my BilgeMaster. He scoffed and tried to empty the kayak by hand. Minutes turned into, well, tens of minutes. He was still trying to empty the last gallon of water when I pulled the BilgeMaster off of my kayak, and went to work. A few effortless pump strokes later, his kayak was as dry as a bone. He was impressed, and so was I.
I tested this pump in a 5 gallon bucket of water so I'd know what to expect if I needed it. WoW does it throw some water! I like that it floats too. I hope I never need it but I feel better knowing I have it. I'm glad I purchased it.
