Re: beat down price

Ordinarily that would be a good substitute, however, there aren't a lot of straight line in a boat necessitating lots of joints. Therein lies the problem.

Re: beat down price

If everything didn't move so much in a boat it would be nice. But it is nice to have a little flexiblility.

I can't think of any reason why not as long as it's possible to route the pipe where you need to. I planned to do it but we decided to go with composting instead.
