Engine hoses

Anyone got, or know where I can get, a pair of black flexible hoses to fit between the boat splashwell and the lower tray of an XR2 style cowl?
Doesn't need to be anything flashy like Rex Marine, just the standard type of thing that comes on Merc or Suzuki big outboards will be fine.

I've tried Ebay and B&O along with most online chandleries but I haven't found anything suitable yet.

Cheers!

Seriously? I guess it would work fine really. Pretty rigid, only got to act as a conduit for a few wires and a fuel pipe. Hmm.... Interesting. Cheers!

Not sure off the top of my head. I can measure it up before the weekend, but at a guess it'd be enough to go from the forward edge of the splashwell (behind the seats, through the existing 'witches hats' and into the lower tray of the motor, twice.
Two lots of four feet each? Be loads, and leave a bit spare inside the splashwell to cope with trim and tilt, etc.

Is that your hull drain plug lying by the starboard hose in the splashwell dude?

Cheers Andy! Sounds like just the job. I didn't know they made copex in 38mm. I'll see what Dan comes up with, but it's good to know about the alternatives.

Moto cross bike front shock gaiters work well used to use them on my ocr argo. Bob McCarthy (OCRDA) can source long ones for you.

The motor cycle ones will be too short for most boats dude, either copex flexable conduit or Vulcathene 1 1/2" flexable waste hose is the best

Thanks for the offer Cyco, but I've managed to source some Rex Marine stuff now so I'm all sorted. Cheers anyway though!
