Hello everybody, I recently got a free Hunter 22 and have it blocked up in my back yard for a total refit. The boat is really not in bad shape other than needing everything replaced, but most of the parts are there, she seems sound. That said, she had been sunk in shallow water while in the hands of the P.O., I have been removing an average 5 gallons of water per day's heavy rain. Looking at the cockpit drain hoses I could see a drip at one end of the hose at the "T" fitting. Also I noticed that the drain assembly is rather long and kind of makes a loop all the way down to the bilge before going up again to exit the bottom drain. This seems to me like bad plumbing - should not drains go in a downward direction??? So is there any reason I should not replace the "t" fitting with a Y fitting and make the drains shorter and more direct? Also, can anybody tell me the size hose used. I believe it is the heavy duty sanitary hose, which I would like to replace with the same thing. Thanks.
