Hi Thanks very much to all the contributions I have found it all very informative.I am on GF this weekend so I will be checking over the A/C water manifold which I have not thought about.I have also made a note about the hull strainer in Rick's Pic.
Rick I am supposing that the hulls trainer is for the A/C water inlet .If so is there any reason you would not have one for the main engine inlet and maybe the Genset inlet.
Cheers

There already is a strainer for the engine and the genset.  They are just located in the engine compartment next to the generator.   In my area, we get eel grass and I clean them out regularly.  I

I added a new strainer above what Hanse did for my watermaker intake.   That one was originally the salt water intake for the aft head, but I converted the heads to fresh water and repurposed it.

he other thing I did was add a scoop strainer on the hull for the big intakes (AC and engine).   This reduces the problem dramatically.  The AC strainer used to *ALWAYS* collect things quickly, but with the strainer on its much better.

This is the before picture.    I had already replaced the AC manifold because the cheap brass popped a leak right in the middle of the fitting (not at a joint).    I wasn't going to wait for the cheap brass ball valves to pop as well.

The larger hose with pink fluid in it is a pump for my watermaker that had just been winterized.  This was before I did the project at the end of the season.


This is the replacement design with the new seacocks.  The thru-hull for the AC strainer is separate from the strainer itself (better access).



FWIW
