Raw-water strainer

During the survey on my 1984 S2 last month, it was noted that the raw-water strainer should be replaced with a 'larger' strainer. The engine is a Yanmar 2GM. Any recommendations?

Thanks,
Mike

The bronze Perko that is about 1 litre in capacity (20 cm. tall?) has served me well. You could suck up two feet of string, three clams and half a bag of seaweed before you'd overheat.


Here it is:

Its a good idea to mount it above the waterline, so as you can open and clean it without that sinking feeling.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

On most boats, isn't the strainer's inlet level, or at most - slightly above waterline, to avoid the need for priming the raw water line each time the engine is started?

I'd agree with TB, the strainer housing should be at water line or very slightly above it.

Mine was at the waterline until I loaded the boat to go cruising. So I raised it a bit (20 cm). The raw water pump has a fair old lift on it.
