Looks good.  I have found that a lot of the small pumps on e-bay are intended for submerged operation (aquariums etc.) and so don't need to worry about a small leak when operating.  That is annoying if you run the pump inside a boat.  Have you had any drips or dribbles from this one?

So far so good.

Printed holder that sits across stern hull, pump clips out if needed.

Looks good mate, even if it does leak, it will pump itself out
