The last thing I need before an Atlantic crossing!
The hose entering the plastic* through hull
near my stuffing box is leaking.
I've a 2007 4jh4ae YANMAR
. 54 HP. I assume that the hose in question is to provide positive water
pressure from engine/exhaust?
Can I just rip the hose off/out of plastic and hose clamp and glue all around making it watertight? What problems might this cause?
I have previously re-tapped the hole for the hose into the plastic and know it will not survive another re-tapping. During this operation I was recommended to replace the whole plastic section next time out of water
but haven't had her out yet.
Any help much appreciated.
*I can't believe they made this plastic.
