sea strainer location and plumbing?
On my boat it is adjacent to seacock, about 2" above it and 6" lateral, below waterline, anti-siphon loop on next piece of hose going to pump. Hose to strainer is about 9" with 90 degree bend, never had a plug in the short run and probably that short section of hose may get it above WL.
Handy spot is better & next to seacock so you remember to clean often. Every couple weeks if you don''t see a lot of floating pieces of grass, every couple days if you do. I was in large harbor overnight last week with lots of stuff floating and a long motor in & out and collected a small salad in 24 hrs.
