This 120" stainless steel hose is a direct replacement for all cockpit mounted stern showers installed by the factory.
Our extra long reach hose is the same as used on current production boats but longer than that used on earlier boats. The longer hose keeps the crew from kinking the hose at the ends by overextending it.
Rubber gaskets / washers not included so you will need to save and reuse your originals.
• Length: 120"
• End fittings (both ends): 1/2" FPT
Most stern showers on Catalinas are installed such that its hose retracts into the boat and can dry when stowed. A stainless steel hose is less prone to damage from kinking than a PVC hose.
But there is a potential negative to a stainless steel hose. The after-market installation (in the additional photo at left) leaves the hose standing in residual salt water.
Stain-less steel does not mean rust-free. If you leave a stainless hose stowed in residual salt water it will soon rust. This is not covered by warrantee. For this and similar applications we suggest our PVC version #Z2621, offered below under "May we also suggest"
