    What kind of clamps for thru hull

    What kind of clamps are you guys using for the thru hull? Are you guys just using regular stainless steel worm clamps, or t-clamps?

    Either or. It is personal preference more than anything. I use the worm clamps on my on the coupler to the outlet and the water box also. I use the t-clamps on the IC piping so it doesn't bite into the softer silicone.

    I use T-Bolts on as many things as I can,IMO they hold better and last longer if looked after. Down side is they cost a bit more.

    Most of the riding I do is on lakes however I do go to sea a few times a year and the last thing to you need is a failure due to a hose clip.

    T-bolt clamps work well....I used SS worm gear clamps on mine BUT i used 2 on each end..this way if one sprung or broke there is a second one to hold till i can get the first one replaced

    If your gonna use worm gear clamps.... use these! These are by far the best worm gear clamps made, I've never had one break or strip out.
