I bought a vetus raw water inlet strainer and needed hose to run from the thru hull to the strainer and then to the engine. Used double clamps at the tru hull and strainer inlet. Single clamps from strainer (above water line) to the engine.

I am replacing hose that is nearly 30 years old with this hose. The quality looks very good but the qualities that make the hose strong and durable also make it a bear to push on over barbed fittings. My mistake may have been trying to install it on a somewhat cold day and I could not push it on the manifold far enough to get two clamps on it. I will try again after warming it with a hair dryer with hopes that I can make it a bit more flexible and push it on further. Time from shipping to receipt was excellent.
