Dog, I don't mean to pick a bone with you.
Could you please cite the ABYC standard that would allow for the use of ridged PVC. The reason I ask, I don't know a surveyor that would not fail a boat with glassed in ridged PVC.
Continuing with this question, could anyone cite a ABYC Standard that would allow the use of anything but USCG approved hose below the water line?
