washdown hose
I put away the garden hose today and it made me remember that the wash down hoses I've used for the boats I've crewed on all seem a little wanting.

Anyone have the perfect hose?

I find the tightly coiled hoses you can get at the garden store work great for this purpose and are easily stowed.
They have it in both 25 an 50ft. lengths. Colorite 25' Boat & Camper Self Coiling Water Hose #WRH8120025: Home Improvement

I agree with Cam. I have one of these that stores in a little area within the anchor locker. At only 25 feet, I find it doesn't reach to the back of the boat, but it sure does well when washing the muck off the anchor.

I also carry some regular garden hose to get some extra reach, and to use when at a slip.
