205 Prostar blower hose replacment with full fuel tank

Anyone attempted to replace their blower hose with a full fuel tank? Working on a '96 prostar 205.

The hose goes in on the bottom as one hose and must split into the two rear vents somewhere behind the tank.

Is this a hard Y adapter?

Can I just attach the new hose to the old hose and pull it through? It is really tight on space on top of the tank.

Did you take out the floor behind the motor box?

Yes. I can see where the single hose goes up behind the tank. Some where up there it splits into two. It is really tight between the tank and the back of the boat.

Mine did not split into two, just one hose attached by the rear vents

Tank comes out easy - 8 screws holding it in. Unless its full of course...then it's a PIA...

I assume mine is split. I have one hose going under the fuel tank and two vents with two hoses attached to them. Could one of the vents attached to something else?

It is full. I may have to wait until spring, but if I can do it with the fuel tank in place, it is just one more thing I can do now and check off the mental list of things to do.

It is not hard at all to move the tank. Full or not.

If I remember correctly from my 1995 Prostar 190, there is one hose that goes from the blower to one vent and a second hose that goes from the other vent down just below the fuel tank for ventilation purposes while underway with the blower off. I swapped both of mine out with the fuel tank in place.
