"I had a boat with a leak in it, and my bilge pump failed and almost sunk my boat," said an inventor from Dundalk, Md. "I thought that if I only had a way to know that the pump was working without physically going to my boat, the whole crisis could have been avoided."

He developed the patent pending STAY AFLOAT BILGE PUMP to immediately alert the boat owner in the event that the primary bilge pump fails. The unit enables the owner to turn the pump back on remotely. The accessory also provides a way to check on the status of the bilge pump and surrounding area. The design eliminates the need to visit the boat every day in order to inspect it to ensure that the bilge pump is operational. All of this offers added peace of mind. Additionally, the system features automatic operation.

The original design was submitted to the Baltimore office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
