while cleaning my cockpit I figured out my  port cockpit drain hose  had disconnected.  I got some new hose from a boat yard and clamped on for storage, as I was not sure of what type of hose

and caulk/adhesive  I need.

What type of hose, clamp, adhesive and tips does anyone have?

Or is this a job for the pros?

thanks 

is there a specific type of drain hose?

as I noted I got some hose at a marina to get something in there till I found the correct hose type

you recommended replacing the thru hulls while I did - what are you referring to when you say thru hulls?

Thanks again for your help

I have hull #578, it has two thru hulls that have are plastic screw flange, that need to be replaced about every ten years due to sunlight (ultraviolet) degradation. It appears you have the molded connections, and don't have to replace the thru hulls. But look at them close to see there is no damage from someone putting on a hose clamp wrong or to tight.
