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?
