Replacement Engine Hoses

Greetings!

I am replacing all of the water and fuel hoses on my Yanmar 4JH2E. Many of the hoses have a custom bend in them, and if I purchased through Yanmar they can be about $25 for 6" of hose!

Is there a good alternative hose that can handle engine cooling system duties and can be bent in a tight radius?

I have found some exhaust hose that seems to do the trick:

Shields SHIELDSAUST-C Exhaust Hose

but cannot find anyone that sells it small enough for my engine's cooling circuit (1").
