    Garden hose hook ups, what r u using?

    I'm trying to find a good looking functional "bung" or "quick disconnect" for a water hose to connect to on the hull side next to the transom. I want to put it next to the water dump or the bilge dump.
    I'm getting tired of climbing inside to connect it to my strainer.

    Thanks

    Superflush will be the method I'll be using if I'm taking the boat to the East Coast. Can't beat it, simple and no running on the muffs!

    I just installed the kit from Mercury for the 496. Great kit! Could have built it cheaper myself, but still a great, factory add-on. The quick-connects are different then any I have seen.

    Works better for me. No worries of muffs sliding off.

    Such a simple design with no valves to switch.

    How is yours plumbed in so that there are no valves? Do you have something like the Perko flush kits with the check valves?
