A boater at my marina nearly sank last year when his boat flooded. He was close enough to shore to be towed in and hauled out before the boat actually sank. Turned out it was a solid drain tube that cracked. This was on an older boat, maybe 30 yrs old or so. Hunter 27 I think.
I would tend to agree that some allowance for flex has to favor hoses.
