Get to work on the bilge-decoy. I would like to see that in action. Kinda like a Jet-decoy! You might be able to waterski behind it! You'll probably have to use a magnum deke to accomodate the weight of the 12v battery and bilge pump. I'm sure it'll ride low in the water. The bane of bilge pumps is trash, especially duck weed. I hunt the swamp with mine and I'm constantly having to unscrew the pump from the mount and clean it out, even after I installed a small mesh screen (lint filter mesh for dryer machines) over the intake of the bilge pump. The smallest pump (200-300 gpm) would probably work better than the the 500, assuming that you are going to make a swimming rather than a rocking decoy. A heavy duty anchor would also be necessary for either. You could actually do a dual-decoy by using male/female connectors between the battery and the pump to either engage the blinker switch for rocking or bypass it for the constant swimming action. The exhaust pipe for the water could either be straight for the swimming or an elbow for the rocking. Just a thought....
