Is there a rule or insurance issue about having an emergency kill switch for bilge pumps? Like most boats, my bilge pumps are direct wired to power and always on. I totally get why that is and it makes sense. However, for my engine room pumps we are installing an emergency kill switch to be able to turn the pumps off if necessary. My reason for this is what if I blow an oil or fuel hose or something that puts a quantity of oil in the bilge? This is unlikely to put the boat in peril from sinking but I sure as heck want that oil contained in the bilge until I can properly clean and dispose. I currently have no way to secure the bilge pumps. Yes, I have a sump below the level of where the pumps are but it is not very big. And if any water is in there obviously oil will float on top and be that much closer to the pumps. Foe peace of mind, we are installing an emergency shut off switch for each pump. I hope to never need them but makes me feel better having them. They will be guarded switches, mounted on the flybridge inside the chart cabinet. This is the same area where I have my emergency bow thruster kill and power steering pump kill switches. Any rules against this or is this a bad idea for reasons I'm not considering?
