Replacing Blower Ducting
 
Hi:

While I was changing the oil filter on my 2001 PS209, I tore my blower duct (it runs right under it). The tear kept getting worse every time I touched it. I was going to use Tyvek tape to repair, but I have about a 6 inch area that is torn up and it is next to impossible to access the torn area.

How hard is it to run new blower ducting? It looks like I will need to remove a floor panel behind the motor box.

Any suggestions??

Thanks!!

Its not a bad job, but you might have to remove the panel behinf the motor box.

Some models have a hard pvc like tube that runs most of the way back that the flexible tube connects to. I am not sure about yours.

Simple, you put it back in just like you took the old out and the hose can be found at most any boat dealer and here, http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=MPI402-30000

I have not taken the ducting out yet.
How does the floor panel come out?

Thanks!!

If it is like my 205, you take off the motor box then the six or so screws the hold down the panel. Lift it straight up and out.

If you look at the floor behind your motor box you will see that it is a section. Two ways to take it out. 1. Unscrew the hinges on the motor box and then there should be 4-6 screws which attach the floor to the boat. Lift out floor section. 2. Leave motor box attached and just undo the floor screw, and take out the floor and motor box as one section (two people may be needed for this approach.

On mine, I also had to remove the rear seat and also the vertical piece in front of the gas tank to get back far enough to remove the blower hose.

You could also do what I did for a season, which was to cut out the damaged section of blower hose and duct tape in a piece of expandable dryer vent hose to seal up the two sections.

To save a few bucks, head to a hardware or home supply store that carries RV stuff. In that department, you'll find the same size flex hose used in the RV world for waste water hook-ups. I bought one box (not sure how many feet were in it) for less than $10 and have enough left over in case I ever need another replacement.

Are the screws holding the floor to the boat under the carpet?

Me too. I think it holds up better than the original

Not on my boat, and I assume unless you have snap out carpet they shouldn't be. On my 190 there are two underneath the motor box and two more at the very rear underneath the rear seat. Maybe someone with a 209 can clarify the procedure.
