    Kinked Bilge Pump line

    I decided to take a look around the back of my GPR yesterday. Kinda just wanted to check the hose clamps and stuff, you know, now that's it's got 60 hours and quite a few "heat & cool" cycles on it. As expected, I was able to get 1-2 turns on all the clamps.
    Everything looked great, BUT, I did find that when they installed the bilge pump line, they routed it in a fashion that kinked the sucker right in half. It was too short to make a nice, gradual path, so they just pulled the sucker, and that's what caused the kink. In the attached pic, it's actually somewhat relieved, (the kink) as I moved the line a little for the pic. In it's normal, as delivered state, it was actually much WORSE.
    Anyhow, just thought I'd share what I found.

    It's a 2005 GPR with 60ish hours.
