    here getting close to pumping water.
    need to ream the aft lid to facilitate raw water pickup up to bucket.

    discharge tube is a tad larger than 5/8" hopefully will drain more than pump in will step up to 1 1/8" if extra drainage is needed.

    plan to route discharge tube behind rod holder the add small piece of bucket for bottom support.

    I fabbed an aluminum hinge bolted to the lid the whole lid is hinged it also seals securely.
