Hi everyone. Boat is almost done. I am replacing all of the old vent hose. Then I can throw the seats back in. Seems like the replacement hose is super flimsy and expensive. CP has it for $.99 a foot, which is the cheapest. My local shop wants $1.99 a foot. Anyways, I was looking for a cheaper and better product. I ended up buying RV sewer hose. It is pretty sturdy stuff. It fits the breather collar perfectly and was $8 for 20 ft. It is all still in the box, I can take it back. I just wanted some opinions and suggestions before I put it in. Thank you everyone in advance.

the whole point for vent hose is to remove fuel vapors from the bilge.  the sewer hose is probably not fuel safe, but id imagine it would take years for vapor to actually eat thru the thick walls.  im a fan of using the "right" stuff and I bought mine on ebay for like $10.

I'd run the sewer hose.  It's just blowing fresh air to ventilate the bilge.  I agree on using proper materials, and if this was for fuel or
oil, I would definitely say use the best hose you can afford.  This application, I don't see what you have to lose.

gas fumes settle on the bottom, hence why the blower hose goes to the bottom of the bilge...
