    Thanks for that. I too was having difficulty with the forum message system making sure I was getting the message to you. I did not know you replied until receiving your PM notification this morning.
    Yes the choices appear to be 1" or 1 1/4" hose. I think mine might be 1" but it is hard to tell.
    It sounds like you replaced yours with the boat off the lift. I think that is what I will do too.

    i used tubing ropes to hold the lift in place. i put it up as high as it would go and tied it off. it sank some, but it worked ok. my dock has roof supports on each side of the slip so it was pretty easy to tie off. i don't remember the exact size of the hose but i think it was 1 1/4 inch. i don't recall any specifics on the pvc other than it was just the generic stuff at home depot. i bought a few elbows for the 2 turns my hose has to make. then i just rough cut the long pipe to get a loose fit. i don't remember sealing any of the ends. with the elbows i just pushed the ends together and friction has held them for a few years. for the part that has to articulate, i just made a rough cut in the middle of the pvc to let it bend. if i had to do it over again, i'd probably make more than one cut in the long part that articulates as it gets a pretty awkward bend when the lift is all the way down. hope this helps.

    Hydrohoist hose repair question.
    I have a slow leak in one hose, probably from an animal bite. Currently patched with duct tape with the hose resting on an old inner tube up out of the water. The boat is still on the lift.
    Were you able to replace your hoses with the boat still on the lift? What was your technique for hose replacement? Did you have to chain up the lift to keep it from sinking, or were the hoses able to be rapidly changed without the lift sinking?
    Thanks. I trying to decide how I am going to go about doing this.
    Also any advice and specifics on the pvc armoring of the hoses?
