  1. Finishing up maintenance on the boat and decided to change out the plastic live well thru hull setup. As I have not removed the original yet, does anyone know what size thru hull it is? (Barbed connection is 1.5" on the existing plastic - but not sure what the OD on the thru hull fitting actually is. I plan to go back Bronze Groco but just wanted to see what others have done on this boat. Want a bronze thru hull to a seacock to a barbed fitting. Just want to make sure it will all fit. Been looking at options on Jamestown Dist. and noticed that I will be dealing with Straight threads that will most likely have to convert to tapered to get to a barbed connection for the hose. Thanks in advance for any input!
  2. Doing a lot of maintenance this fall on my 2000 model 2200V Pathfinder. While in the bilge area, I noticed that my live well drain plastic hose has a kink in it. It is kinked so badly that I am worried that it is going to split. Not sure if this hose originally had a loop in it that has kinked over time or not. It looks original and the thru hull looks dry rotted. Being that this could be a bad situation if it burst, I am going to attempt to replace it. The pie hole is so small that this will be a fun task........most of the work will have to be done by feel......Anyone else run into this situation? I am considering putting a valve at the thru hull that can be shut off......just in case down the road. Any reason I couldn't use a heavy duty rubber hose in lieu of this ribbed plastic hose?
  3. Rule 700 and strainers

    Thanks for the response, but there are some specific questions in mine that the post you mentioned did not answer. Want to replace strainers. What are folks using now? Also want to confirm valve size is 1". thanks for the help!
  4. Rule 700 and strainers

    I love my 2000 model 2200v that is still going strong. I plan to replace the Marelon valve (going bronze) and while I am there I want to replace the original Rule strainers and 700 pumps. Cant find the same pumps or strainers . I am sure others have run into this so sharing for feedback. Pics attached. One inlet pump from bottom inlet only. Also, can anyone confirm valve size....I believe it is a 1" NPT. Going back bronze marine grade full body Apollo.
