I just started on the top end fuel system in hardline and it looked so good I got out of control. The whole fuel system and water system are hard lined. Less 4 lines. I will be in Parker june 6th-8th just north of the Blue water casino. Will anyone else be out next weekend?

Squirtcha, I work in the plumbing business so I got the hard line very reasonable the fittings are much cheaper than regular an fttgs also.You just have to know that you will have peices that dont come out right and a piece of line goes in the scrape bin. It was very time consuming. It took about 8 months to complete just the lines. I cant take all the credit either my Uncle helped out a lot. In the priceing it did come out a little cheaper. Got to figure what you time is worth you can build braided lines pretty fast.

I'd be in serious trouble then...........my attention span to any one task is only about 24 hours. After that I'm done and on to something else. Since I have no experience bending hardline and assembling fittings, I'd probably waste more than the cost difference.

I does look very nice though.......

I hear ya on the hard line. Just plumbing my fogger system took two weeks and there was alot of scrap laying around when it was all said and done.

Boat looks insane! Not positive but we may have a boat or two below the damn next weekend.

i love the hard line, i originally had stainless that i was starting to run on my boat, but ran into some issues flaring the ends. how thick is that line? what kind of flaring tool did you use. i am planning to redo mine to stainless like i originally wanted, but haven't had the time to do it. boat looks great!

The flaring tool is a rigid #377 part #41162 ,37 deg flares .The tubing is a thinner wall easier to bend little for flex against cracking got the pipe and flaring tool at Bell pipe supply in Anahiem.
