Cockpit Drains are IN!

Well, entirely that is. The hose for the drains up to now has been temporary, just some cheap vinyl spiral hose. It has been replaced with more rigid "heavy duty" hose approved for bilge and under-the-waterline applications. All double clamped near or under the waterline.

The hose has been mounted to the engine room bulkhead using custom machined "clamps" (from coosa) so the weight of the hose assemblies is not entirely supported by the hose clamps on the cockpit drains.

What hose did you use for the cockpit drains?

Welcome back Gerry,

I used this stuff from Sierra Marine

Spiral reinforced, yet smooth walled (inner and outer).
