In your waters, I'd definitely recommend a strainer. It should be close to the thru-hull, but the location you've decided 0n will at least keep animal and vegetable sea life out of the pump assembly and the rim of bowl. Worst case, you'd only have to replace the intake line.

Peggie,

Thatís exactly my thoughts. Iíd hate to have to reroute the intake line, but itís really only about 6 feet of hose total from the thru hull to the pump. Thank you again!
