Strainer On Beneteau 34
 
I have 2012 Beneteau 34 and I am trying to figure out who the manufacturer is on the Raw Water strainer they use for the factory installed A/C unit??? The screen on my strainer has failed and I figured it would be an easy trip to West Marine for a replacement but NO. I have tried every major brand replacement end none fit. The bowl/screen on my unit is about a 1/4 inch too short and that causes ALL replacements screens to twist and fail when installed into the existing unit. Because of the location of the strainer it would be a bit of project to replace the entire unit with a known brand but I think that is my last option.
I have tried, Greico, ShurFlo and Jabsco but none work...

I have called Beneteau but have not been able to get the part number from them...

Any Ideas other than the obvious, Tear the thing out and replace?

Nope looked through their product line and they are primarily Engine cooling.

Mine is a Sherwood. Look it up and see if it isn't the same one. WM doesn't sell Sherwood.

You might as well replace it with something more "standard" or well known. Cheap part.

Just because WM doesn't carry Sherwood doesn't mean it is some off brand. I have 2 on my boat. One that was already there on my water system when I bought the boat and then when I had AC installed a few years ago, my AC guy used one for the water pump.

As it turns out, I have a Sherwood Distributor right around the corner from my office/marina s and they have replacements in stock. I am heading over there tomorrow to pick a few up.

Thanks for all the great feedback!
