I don't have voltmeter handy. Can you tell me where to look for the live well pump or a web site that might have a picture or location?

I'm sorry no I can not. I will opt out.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** well pump will be at the transom of the boat connected to a thru hull fitting.Here's an example of a live well pump in a Carolina Skiff. The pump with the 2 hoses is the live well pump. Just test for voltage on the 2 wires going to the pump. With no volt meter all you can do is remove the pump and see if the impeller spins freely. Have you checked all the fuses?
