Google search on "Reinforced Hose" gone awry

Seriously, keep safe search on if you're going to be doing research on reinforced hose. Ho's. Hoes. Anyway.

Anyway....... I would like to re-do my cockpit drain to thru-hull setup. Currently it just has aquarium-grade clear plastic tubing.

I've been told it's best to stick with clear because you can see where clogs are and also it's just cool to see where your waterline is, but you need to use reinforced hose.

I found this at Hamilton Marine (where I'm pricing out the the bronze fittings): PVC REINFORCED .75" WH W/BLUE TRACER

But they only sell it in 0.75" and I was hoping to go 1" and also they only sell it in a 50' roll and I need like 4' max.

West Marine sells this by the foot: Series 135 Heavy-Duty Water Hose

But it's not clear and so it loses the cool factor....



Is there a recommended hose for this purpose? Cockpit drain to below-the-waterline thru-hull?

Thanks!
