RE: Replacing exhaust hose

The right tool makes all the difference. What you want is called a "hose pick". I use the one with the bent end (Stock #: SGA175BR) so I can pull around the mount. See: http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/tools...e=snapon-store

It is worth it to find (or make) yourself one of these. Another trick is to put a little silicone caulk (high temp black for exhaust) on the fitting before sliding the new hose on. This will not only help it slide on, but slide off again years later. A little regular clear silicone caulk does the same for regular water hoses. The PO did this on my boat, and it was amazing how easily everything came off after years of use.
