Valid guess but the boat was winterized. The cut was clean.
I'm just hoping I'll get lucky and someone that has the same boat can confirm that their is no strainer on this design originally.

Re: Raw water hose

I have a different boat, but the same engine. No strainer installed--it was a repower from the original Atomic 4, so I've never been able to tell if this was a design issue or if someone just forgot to put the strainer back in.

I've sailed without the strainer like the previous owner was doing, but this year I'm finally going to spend the $$ to install a good strainer.

Re: Raw water hose

Double check integrity of through-hull installation & attached fittings, BUY THE STRAINER, replace hose with quality hose and double clamp both ends. Cheap insurance. If it wasn't installed when built somebody cut corners to save a few bucks.
