Hoser,
I have a little bit of everything. I have fittings from Earls, Aeroquip, Russel, XRP, etc. It all depends on who has what I'm looking for. The nice thing about the black is that they are all the same color. If you use the blue fittings, the color varies from one manufacturer to the other. Most of the time I have to mix and match fittings from different sources.

I think maybe you mis understood. I would use the blue aeroquip hose and brass fittings on the water only. The aluminum with salt water does not mix, and it corrodes from the inside so its hard to tell when its going to let loose.

It can happen fast in saltwater with a little stray current in a marina.

As far as restrictive the ID on the hose and fittings is the same as the aluminum fittings.

I was just in a 46 cig with 1075's and the water was done with brass and stainless fittings, no alum.

I'm on a similar page as you. If you're running salt 100% of the time you need stuff that lasts. Somtimes it means a little less bling.

Yahoo,
I understand exactly what you are saying. I just don't like brass fittings. I actually didn't use any aluminum fittings on the water hoses. All fittings on the water side are stainless. I do have a couple of brass fittings in the bilge, but I painted them black so they would not stand out. There is another reason that I use the black AN fittings. They are hard coat anodized, so they hold up better to water then the blue and red fittings do. I have used aluminum hard anodized fittings in salt water before and they held up great. Not as good as stainless, but better then the others. I have boated most of my life in salt and know how harsh it can be. It will eventually eat up any aluminum fitting.
