|The old hose looked like the above image on the outside and it has spiral-wound wire reinforcement.|
|Looking into the end of one of the old hoses we removed, you can see where the wire |
reinforcement is exposed and the rust stains that developed inside the 31-year old hose.
|As we inserted the screws in the deck fitting, the silicone we applied to the back of the |
fitting flange oozed out over the green masking tape. The process of applying
masking tape in this way really saved on clean up time.
|The only signs of any difference after this project was completed is the new hoses |
that can be seen in a few spots in the boat--this one is in the v-berth.
