You don't want to access the hose from inside if you have water sitting in the anchor locker. You'll get an awful mess inside your boat.

Bought mine at West Marine, likely their house brand. It is a flat rectangular shape that is very unlikely to tip over. Very happy with it.

I'm not a 1/2 ton guy, because I like to feel like a MAN, but to be fair we need to acknowledge that today's 1/2 tons are as capable as yesterday's 3/4 or SRW 1 tons, especially in braking. (Now if...

The M8 is smoother and stronger, but still unproven for the long haul to me. Consider picking up a 15 or newer 103 for a good deal, enjoy it for a few years to see how the M8 proves out, and then...

If you are splashing in salt water, your electric brakes will not last long. But they are cheap enough to replace.

Do you have wires going to your brakes? Likely electric brakes.
