Geography. The boat is a Europa style so the back wall of the cabinet is above the deck. Directly below is the fuel tank, and aft of that the water tank. The old hose routing was the nearest to get above the waterline, and I'm sure with proper securing I could manage proper fall, but that thru-hull is so hard to access I would rarely secure it properly. The hole was already right there, so rather than patch two holes and drill another, I went down this road.
