    What is a good type of hose for the bait tank fill hose? The one that was on my tank was corrugated and it had a crack in it by the top of the bait tank. I'm looking for something that is stronger but still flexible.

    Red rubber water hose. The Clear PVC With Braid in it gets old and brittle. The White PVC Sanitation Hose will Kink if it is stressed and under the deck and the Sun heats the Area. Had both happen to me.

    It's the hose that is below the water line.

    Quick Google search. That stuff when it gets warm won't take a set or kink. I screwed around with a Bait Tank I Built for a guy for 2 months. Even bought a 2000 GPH SurFlow Pump. Kept saying to myself the hose was good. Finally Unbolted the tank from the floor to find the hose was kinked. The Boat was 180 miles away in Westport, Wa. Felt like a dumb ass for something so simple. Stuck a 1" ID rubber hose on it and it worked. My friend @carrie's bait boy aka Norm is happy with it.

    After 2 or three years; watch it it will harden and crack on you.

    Do it right. Use shields series 148 livewell hose. It's below waterline rated and tough as shit. It won't collapse on you in the heat. You can use it to replace your deck drain hoses too. I'm sure they are as old and brittle as your bait tank hose. Get that spiral ribbed crap out of your boat.

    That should work fine. It's what is on my bilge pump and livewell hose from the factory. Still like new 14 years later. The ribbed crap on the deck drains was another story. Now get it fixed and go catch some fish!:D
