    Brain,

    Good observation, and one I had not thought of. I am not sure that the factory location puts it below the draft level. That would be a nice bonus if it did.

    Yesterday i installed the $28.50 raw water strainer as Al had done it in the factory location. While prepping for it i remembered Al mentioning the barbed fittings would not go all the way into the hose due to the spiral wrapped wire in the hose.

    Looking at it I noticed the factory hose EL on the Vdrive only has a larger rounded end to help secure the hose, no barbs. So i got to thinking, why not emulate that on the fittings and eliminate the issue. So i did, i cut off three barbs, rounded and smoothed and i was able to get the fittings all the way into the hose (not without WD-40 and muscle!) with room for clamps and it seems to have worked just fine.

    Default What about

    I'm going with this McMaster-Carr item, there is at least two places for an install; in front of the tranny cooler and in front of the raw water pump. Probably a spot down at the hull as well, I'm traveling and can't look at my newly purchased '08 Boomer right now.

    the only problem i see with that is it restricting the flow of water if junk starts building up on the screen.

    Exactly the reason NOT to use that setup. If anything gets in that screen it will immediately diminish water flow. Too much blockage will overheat the engine and or cause a potential burst point somewhere.

    I have an 06 OBV which is smaller and it didn't look like I could get the vertical mount from the howto to fit under the v-drive cover. There are a few ways I could get it to fit in there but I settled on this with only two elbows. The 3.25" or so section of tube I cut off was the only cut I had to make; the stock tube is now short enough that it can run to the strainer without any real issues. On the plus side I think I can also still make that stock tube connect to the v-drive if there were a reason to.

    Haven't gotten it on the water to double check everything yet, but should hopefully be good to go.
