    Looks like an empty battery tray next to it? If it is I would say a breather for the battery.

    its a vent tube for a acid filled battery, if you use a gel type or sealed you can just zip tie it or let it just flop around

    If you use a gel battery, it's good idea to plug this hose with a golf tee, then zip tie, as it can allow water into the hull.

    Hey man don't feel stupid - this thread just cured my question. I had the same question with the same hose but my battery does not have a vent on it so up until I just now read your posts I couldn't figure out where it went. I was pretty worried about it.
    This also explains why there always seems to be a little bit of water in the hull. I'm going to pug it with a golf tee like has been advised.

    I love this forum!
