Default Anyone make any heavy duty bilge blower hose?

I am looking for better bilge blower hose.
I replaced a section while one motor was out last winter. Now I have both motors out, and went to replace the other side. However when I inspected the section I did last summer, I found it already had holes in it and the paper thin pastic material is now brittle.
Who makes better / thicker / longer lasting 3" bilge blower hose???

Thanks

I don't know but I need some too. The Maytag dryer hose on my Hustler is falling apart. There has to be something better.

Home Depot and Lowes sells an aluminum expandable dryer vent hose which is pretty trick. I'm using the 3" variety.

Do a search for duct hose, or anything else that you can think of!

Exactly. Home Depot/Lowes aluminum flexible hose found in the venting/pipe section for gas appliances. I'd give that a try. Screw plastic or pvc unless the hose needs to be squeezed or crunched to fit. I use it for my home dryer with no problems.

Yeah, I saw it too, but in salt air/water - won't it corrode?
Don't need to pull the motors again just to swap out vent hose.
I'll do it right the first time.
