Help Centre board leak

Well the boat went in the water today and ended up coming right back out. The flexible pipe that connects to the glasses through hull that carries the braided stainless line must have dried out and cracked over winter and started to pee water into my Bilge.

Won't be a hard job for me to fix it I was just wondering what type of hose to use to replace it?

Btw the boat is an Irwin 28

Re: Help Centre board leak

Not sure how yours is set up, I have a 37 Irwin and the fiberglass tube connects to a stainless tube. I used 1 inch exhaust hose for the junction.

Caleb's suggestion is what went through my mind, too. Another option is to measure the OD of the pipe (or the ID of the hose you're removing) and see if Catalina Direct's hose would work.
