NEW BAIT WELL! Pump to fill it!

Hi Guys

The old man decided to go all out and make some mods to our boat that involved taking out seats etc!

We have wondering, for about 3 years, how to get a decent bait well in as we dont have the space for the 60 litres drum effort!

Well since he cut away the seats, it turns out that there is a tray under the centre of the boat that I assume was designed to hold the inboard fuel tank, that our boat was never equipped with!

I can hope fully set this up as a live well, but would like all the pipes and wires to run internally with as little cutting and drilling to the boat as possible!!

Can I therefore use an inline pump as apposed to mounting a bilge pump below the water line? they use them on caravans and stuff!

I would only have to use a surface drainer style hole just below the water line then which would be easier to fit and require a much smaller hole but would be permanently in place without me lifting a pump in and out the water!

Any help and advice for what fittings we can use would be great!

It's only to keep your lobsters & crabs alive, nothing to do with live bait!;)
