            Comments about Shields Rubber Series 148 Hose, 3/4" Diameter, 3" Minimum Bend Radius:

            This hose looks great, but very difficult to install and it crack over time. I would not use it below the water line. You might just forget to shut your thru hull valve some day and you dont want to have toilet hose sink your boat. Use the rubber metal inforced hose for below water line. Great for things like toilet to the tank, or tank to the deck fitting.
