I intend to put a huge ( 3500gph) bilge midships in my 69 42'. I would rather not make an  1 1/2' thru hull to accommodate it and a reducer to an existing smaller one would defeat the purpose. Could I Y at the sink grey water  1 1/2' discharge and add the bilge discharge?  This "emergency" pump  will be 6-7" above maintenance  pump level. So it should never go on ...right ;)

If it does maybe it might squirt out the sink drain? If that happens I have more things to worry about than a wet kitchen rug! And a heads up that bilge systems have gone to defcon-5 isn't an bad thing.

Am I missing anything here or is this a no brainer...?

That's just mean. I had a Sea Ray once. 

There's a 34' Luhrs for sale in Ct that hit a rock. Looks like he tore off both struts and the starboard rudder. Didn't do that much damage to the hull. Doesn't say how fast he was going.
