Re: I hate boats...

The problem I am having is with the size of this hose.

Upon further review, its not your exhaust hose, BUT, it seems too big for a waterhose?
Could this be for your maceration? ...

Re: I hate boats...

let me get this straight.
water goes into your intake, thru the pump, thru the heat exchanger, then the water goes to a siphon break, then to your mixing elbow?

Re: I hate boats...

Re: I hate boats...
