Fastening Exhaust Hose
« on: October 10, 2018, 02:50:25 PM »
What kind of "thing" should be used to secure the exhaust hose? I am reinstalling/rerouting the hose and I'm not sure what to use to secure it. More specifically, I know what to fasten into on the boat, but not what to use to wrap around the hose. The hose moves a lot when engine ins on, so chafe is an issue.  Should the fastenings allow for movement or should fasten as rigid as possible?

Thanks

Mine is secured with 1" webbing straps, which are attached to various points in the boat with a screw and washer.  The webbing is not super tight, so they allow for some hose movement, but I don't see any chafe on the straps or hose.  It's a 1978, and the straps appear to be original.  My fuel fill hose is secured the same way.
