Perko, Sea Water Strainers, Flushing, Bronze, 1-1/4"
114753 593007PLB 1-1/4" 10" 5-1/2" 4-1/2" x 6"

The above strainer is real expensive, but considering I'm ocean faring (ski/dive boat) and accordingly flush crazy (installed a Volvo intercooler on engine front opposite side to alternator), I am thinking about the above strainer. The advantage of having a isolation valve and flush valve built-in will eliminate my current ball valve, sureflo r/w strainer, and perco flush valve (plumbed in that order). Of course space is an issue in my closed-bow 1998SS19.
But, does anyone have any experience in this critter? Or advice on best way to plumb?

Opss below size
Height Overall 10" Width Overall 5-1/2" Cylinder Dims. 4-1/2" x 6"

And, I could decrease the overall strainer size alot by selecting a strainer with inlet/outlet 3/4" vs. 1 1/4"
Using adapers I could get back to 1 1/4" on the outlet...is there a flow problem with this idea considering an intercooler is installed (raw water used to cool engine gycol and exhaust hdrs)?
