As you can see from the last picture there is a huge difference in hoses. I take many pictures of bad installations but a reader sent me this one. It takes the cake!

Please do not use the wrong hose. This boat came darn close to sinking. Use 4 ply minimum, non-wire reinforced hose. The Buck Algonquin product is six ply.
