I see it's upside down. Does it work well that way? Just curious.

There is also no motor in the boat from bad winterization when I purchased it. So hence the wrong position from hoses being moved and taken off. was just purely showing older mastercraft boats can fit them..but i have seen them in different angles

I boat in muddy waters with lot's of duck weed.

Something worth while?

I went to the Sherwood strainer. Skidim along with others carries them

Just my .02 cents worth
Although I seen the couple posts where the person(s) had issues with that strainer, I have to add that I have that strainer and it works just fine for me. It is mounted inside the rear starboard locker (for my v-drive) for easy access. Nice thing about the way it is mounted is that you can open and clean the strainer and you don't loose the water (prime) between it and the raw water pump.

Looking at the Sherwood, it appears to be smaller in size and I think you would have an easier time mounting it in-line or in otherwise smaller access areas.

Just a different worth.

I also went with the Sherwood strainer on my 93 Stars and Stripes....

There is a ton of duck weeds and debree where I ski.....

It was a really tight fit as you can see in the pics....

Since the install, I have had zero problems....

I have one on my boat-a nice heavy duty bronze topped one (don't remember the brand off the top of my head). I think they come standard on the saltwater series boats. I always clean mine out at the end of the year, but there hasn't ever been much in it. While winterizing this year I finally discovered the drain-I had been sucking the water out of it with the shop vac previously.
