We changed all our baskets to poly in our raw water strainers*and now (hopefully) they*should last forever.*
I'm not sure what you mean*about the ability to keep trash from passing?* If you decrease the mesh size*don't you you have to increase the surface area?* Any thing that passes through our*screens can pass all the way through our engine and coolers.

*Every time my assistance tow boat overheats...it's not the Perko*strainer that's clogged it's the oil cooler..
The same used to happen on my sportfish.
I'm not sure that different make strainers*will be better...but if they are cheaper, last longer (strainer wise), are easier to see into, and keep the same amount of stuff ut...I figure I'm ahead.
