Many HCs came equipped with "Fynspray" pumps. They are manufactured in New Zealand and are readily available. Just do a search on line and you will find several vendors. Indeed, I believe that you can even find them through West Marine. The will retail in the 110-130 US$ range for each. Good luck. Regards,

Many HCs were also delivered with FinSpray copies. The ones that came with my HC33T new in 1986 pumped on the downstroke instead of the upstroke as do the FinSprays. This is how you can tell the copies, the handle is attached "backwards". This might have been an attempt to get around a patent...? What that design ddid do was actually make it easier to pump because the work was being done as your weight was on the pump. I had trouble rebuilding them and so gave them to another 33 owner going offshore (for spares) and replaced them with FinSprays with have worked flawlessley these 16 years.
