Beckson Marine

Superior Hand Pump maintains coast guard approval

A simple, but critical piece of safety equipment for any vessel is a reliable, fast hand pump. The high-powered design of Beckson Marine's 519CG#2 and 519CG#3 hand pumps exceeds the original requirements of Coast Guard regulation No. 519C.

When no hand pump other than Beckson's could pass the test, those specifications were reduced. These lifeboat and commercial vessel pumps are still "over built" to the company's higher standard.

Both models have a cast aluminum handle, stainless steel shaft and a low temperature hose. The 519CG#2 has 2' intake and 6' outlet hose, while the 519CG#3 includes a 3' intake and 10' outlet. They require no priming and push a gallon of water in 3 strokes.

For recreational craft, Beckson offers the portable 519C pump, measuring 24" L with a 4' inlet and 6' outlet hose. Model 519FD is a flush deck, permanent mount version with an 8' inlet hose. Built to the same proven design as the USCG approved 519 Series Pumps, they meet Beckson's rigid specifications for safety and high performance.

Suggested retail prices for Thirsty-Mate 519 pumps start at $320.
