Re: Any Reason Not To Use PEX On A Boat?

For the larger yacht/ ship with an extensive hot water system it makes more sense, specially if they have a hot water return line (and they would).

Same applies to homes BTW.

Agree. Any benefit of insulation would be hard to measure and really not worth the effort.
