Exhaust hose length

I plan to replace the exhaust hose in my 1985 C36. Dose anyone know the length of the exhaust hose?

Keith,
It was 16' on my 84.

J.R.-
Thanks for the info. This is the EXACT kind of info that should be in the Owner's Encyclopedia. I've posted it there. Does anyone know the length of the exhaust hose for the MkII?

While it won't address the exact length of the exhaust for this situation, there is an article in the latest Catalina Mainsheet, in the technical section, on the replacement of the exhaust hose on a C34. The article contains some good tips. I believe the author's hose was 17 feet, plus or minus, and he ordered it from Defender, which was the only place that would sell it in one length, as opposed to shorter lengths.

Hi, everyone.

I need to replace my exhaust hose, and need to order one. Does anyone know the inside diameter on it?

I'm thinking it 1 1/2.

1-5/8" on my boat, 1986 C34. Instead of guessing, why not simply read the label on the hose?

1-5/8" on my 1984 C36. 17 feet long. I purchased 18 feet to ensure I would not run short. I used a poly fitting to couple the end of the old pipe located at the engine side to the new pipe, using 4 screws to attach the pipes to the poly fitting ( I threw the fitting out when I was done). One person fed the new pipe through at the engine end, while a second person pulled the old pipe through in the rear lazerette. The method worked well and took approximately 20 minutes. Each end was double clamped with new clamps. The pipe cost around $140. My Marina quoted me around $500, so I saved $360 doing it myself.

I just replaced the exhaust hose on  my 2002 Catalina 36 MKII.. It took the 2 inch wired, wet exhaust hose,12 feet exactly which is somewhat convenient since they come in 12 foot lengths,  The technical difficulty for this project was about 2 out of 10.  The labor difficulty is about 8 out of 10.  Getting old hose out is a B#@&*.  Pushing the old hose out into the port lazaret was quite difficult and time consuming. It took several trips into the rear cabin on my stomach, out to the lazaret, and back.  Putting the new hose in was easier but still difficult.  I had to shimmy myself in the port lazaret to push the hose end into the opening in the bulkhead which is shared a few other hoses.  Once there I could force the hose into the aft compartment.  I used soapy water to assist in putting the hose onto the water/exhaust mixer and the exhaust exit in the rear.  That part was easiest of all.  Replacing the retaining brackets was hard as well, as it required another dive into the port lazaret and more time on my stomach in the aft cabin.  The hose itself cost about $188.00.  When ordering the hose be sure to get the one with wire.  So, on a lighter note, I saved myself a bunch of money doing it myself.
