Can't say for on your boat, but I can tell you the on a 1957 21' Continental it is forward of the hull drain, so I would suspect that a year older Capri would be similar. :D

If your T Handle drain is adjacent to the keel then you can mount the bilge pump directly to the keel next to the T Handle drain as long as you have the room.

I cut a square hole in the seat frame bottom and install a clear removable door so I could see the pump and access it without removing the seat frame.
