    32xx hose size,engine compartment blower??-gctid790506

    Hi Ya - Can someone, please, tell me the size of the blower hose, 3" or 4", as I have a opertunity to buy new cheap but being 2000 miles away from boat, do not know what size.

    Thanks Terry

    My 1990 2556 has 4" hose. I only know off the top of my head because I have spent the last hour trying to figure out how to remove the darn collector box behind the vent louver that the hose connects to so I can replace the old hose.

    Can't help you with your specific boat though, sorry.

      Thanks, anyway. I think 4" but would like to know for sure.

            Indeed it should be 4 and recommend two blowers.

              Could be 3 or 4 inch. I put 4'' in mine as replacements. I think it could just be a boat by boat kinda thing.

                Four inch is the required size. Like another poster said, use two hoses each for intake and exhaust, two blowers. The engine compartment size can technically get by with one, but because it is right on the edge so to speak, two will be better and they are not very expensive. A four inch 270 cfm inline blower can be purchased for less than $30 from places like amazon. Don't forget to use marine wiring and the correct capacity fuse for the blower motor.
