My engine thru hull has neither a scoop or a screen. My previous boats had the brass slotted scoop. Any concerns with water flow or possible clogging? thanks

If you don't want a screen on the outside like a South Bay strainer....you will need a sea water strainer in line...on the inside of the engine room....I like Groco products

cb34- Are you building a 30 Calvin Beal? I have always used a scoop with slots and a sea water strainer. If it were me, I would be safe and get a scoop.

No scoop needed on an engine. Either a strainer on the outside of the hull with small holes or a Grocco type in line. If you use the in line, you still want to have a round strainer on the hull to keep any big stuff out.

You want a round strainer that goes over the intake. Go to Hamilton Marine and put in

STRAINER ROUND 8" PL BRZ 8" 103570
PLUMBING / STRAINER

Part#: BKA-00SR800

Get the right diameter to cover the intake. With this type of cover, you have to also have a Grocco type inline strainer.
