Thats what we would use. Now we just use a regular hose, better flow.

Thanks for the input. I may just run a hose up to the bow when necessary. I feel what you have is a good set up. Hard to believe Beneteau would build a boat at this price point with no anchor wash down. Thanks

Thanks again for sharing this. I inspected my setup today. Nothing better to do when its 25 degrees out...

Mine is about .5-1" away from the corner of the generator. Its held down / in-place by a couple zip tie downs.

Nonetheless, this presents a good reason to inspect cables, hoses, etc.

Glad to hear your cable is good shape.
