Hey Dan,
Best choice for a cockpit bilge pump would be a Gusher or Edson diaghragm 
pump. Some of the models come with deck plate instalation options, so you 
could mount them on the for and aft bulkhead of the cockpit locker, and then, 
would not have to open the locker seat cover to use the pump. There are 
plastic and aluminum models-though the aluminum models are much more 
expensive initialy, they last much longer.  I had a plastic one that was 
about 5 years old, and at a critical moment (another story) the socket where 
the handle went in just snapped off.  
I don't know where you are located, but if there is a West Marine, or other 
big marine equipment distributor near you, go see their selection, and talk 
to a sales person who KNOWS about bilge pumps.

A hand bilge pump in the cockpit is an excellent idea, for the possibility of 
a 'zero hour' type situation, when you find yourself having to steer and pump 
at the same time.

Hope this helps,
Stargazer #255
