    My Jabsco fesh water pump is really loud on my Bavaria 37 Cruiser. Any ideas on how to make this piece of kit a bit quieter?

    I had a similar problem on my B32 and found the pump was leaking from loose fixing screws at the joint below the motor and the diaphragm. As a result it was sucking in air which caused the knocking. Tightening the screws, which you can see in your picture at the bottom, solved the problem. The vibration of the pump operation causes the screws to loosen over time.

    Mine also has been noisy since new, I have assumed it is lacking vibration isolating mountings, so I will be interested to hear if tightening did / does resolves it.
