I have a 1982 C27 with an Atomic 4 engine. The exhaust hose that attaches to the transom exhaust port is probably original to the boat, and my mechanic says it is leaking and needs to be replaced. However, there is no way to access the hose without cutting through the aft lazarette or transom. Is there any other way to access that hose?

Pull the new hose through with the old one? Just be sure to connect one to the other so they don't come apart when you pull

Can you remove the fitting from the transom and 'pull' some of the hose outside the boat, clean up the end, reattach and done? or same process and use the old hose to fish a new one through from that end?

SOLVED: Once I emptied the deep port locker, I noticed there is an access panel near the bottom. It's just big enough for one arm, shoulder, and a head. We got in there, unscrewed the hose clamps, and cut the old hose off. Thanks for reading and helping!
