Raw water intake
I am geting ready to replace my raw water strainer and all the hoses and fittings from the thru hull to the impeller pump. The engine is a Westerbeke 27A. I can't find anything in my parts and operators info that specs what size strainer and hoses to use.
The present "system" is a 5/8 ID reinforced garden hose from the seacock to the strainer, and a 7/8 ID hose from the strainer to the impeller pump.
I am thinking of going with a Groco ARG 3/4 strainer and 3/4 in hose. What does your boat have on it, and what would you suggest I use? Is 3/4 inch large enough for this engine?
