I used the same dryer exhaust hose as Mike, got mine at Menards and it has held up well.
Mike, is your rear floor screwed down? Mine is a floater right now due to the holes being rounded out and I was thinking about fixing that. Do you just re-drill the newly filled holes, or would using some type of insert and machine screw be the way to go?

You can either epoxy the holes and re-drill, use slightly bigger screws or drill new holes right next to the current holes...

I think our floor has 4 screws total and one is starting to not grab...may look at this as a project more over the winter....

I just redrill holes.. fill current holes with the epoxy - like rockman I have 4 screws to hold it down.. I am considering changing to a screw insert - haven't decided yet. Inserts would take more time with the boat...

Do you secure your hose at all? I need to replace mine as well. Can't recall though if it is anchored other than at the ends...

clamped at blower - I zip tie it along the way to the rear vent. Rear vent has a plastic assembly you can twist hose into.

I brought my boat home today to go ahead and get the winterization and winter projects started. I was going to wait until after Thanksgiving but the weather is supposed to drop into the 20s for the low so I didn't want to take any chances. I drained the block before the drive home and I plan on running antifreeze through tomorrow. I have a little bit of oxidation both on my deck and hull so I started a little wet sanding. So far I am pleased as I only sanded with 1500 and buffed but I may have to go up to 2000 at least on the red gel. Below is the before and after on a section of the deck. I can't wait to get the entire boat looking like this.
