I replaced a Par pump which was leaking. The pump provides water to the galley and head on our Beneteau 36CC.
The West Marine pump was easy to install because I was able to use the existing plumbing and electric wiring.
I did have to drill two holes to mount the pump because only two out of four lined up.

The pump looks about as solid as the Shurflo it replaces. There is no good reason why these nearly identical plumps don't have the same mounting holes, though. Boaters drill enough holes in things, this is a place where a little planning by WestMarine would have made installation even simpler.

Also, while the pump advertises adequate pressure, it is too weak to push water through the end-of-faucet Brita filter that the Shurflo managed without difficulty (well, until it died at the tender age of 3).

        Thanks to your employees of Anacortes, WA for their fast assistance. They were wonderful and took the newly replaced and failed pump from West Marine Gig Harbor, WA with another pump from their inventory.

                    I installed the pump on my 37' Formula 370ss. With 2 faucets, 2 wash down hoses and a transom shower the 3 GPM works great. Preasurizes teh tak quickly and is very quiet. So far very happy.
