Can I get an idea what others are using?
« on: March 04, 2012, 03:10:35 PM »
The hose protector I have for my main is a shop vac hose. Can I get an idea what others are using? I really would like to find a product that is not that stiff. I remember seeing a felt like hose cover that I seen at the boat show that some of the boat manufactures were using.

Anybody?

Mercury puts out a woven, soft wrapping that I've used.  Will try to get details for you.

What I really wanted to comment on is how you seem to have solved the high price of fuel.  Your fuel filter shows a line in, nothing out.  Boy, a tank of gas must last a long time.

I actually have the connectors off right now :redface:

Don at Arima put the fuel filter there. Not real sure I like it there but I'm running out of room. The bulkhead Hydraulic hose kit worked out real nice.

Looks like a dandy sleeve.  Would sure tidy things up in my motor well..... Except I would have to disconnect the controls, fuel and wiring to install.  Zip ties will likely have to do it for me.

I have the same issue Russ does. 

Not as pretty as those options, but they do make corrugated wire loom in really big (3" diameter) sizes.  Would be much easier to slip on.

My goal is to clean this area up and it looks like I will have to unwire some wires to the main.

Motion Marine is where I bought my last boat and they had enclosed the plumbing with top gun material. It had sewn in Velcro for the full closure. Anytime work had to be done, it was easy enough to open up and re-close. No plumbing had to be disconnected, etc.
