Intake Strainers

Stephen Davis

We have Aloha hauled for a repower, and while we are out, we were thinking of adding strainers over the 3 below the waterline seawater intakes. I'm particularly concerned with the intake for the engine/genset, as it seem that it would be easy for a plastic bag on even a jellyfish to clog this critical intake. Has anyone else added strainers? Any negative side effects to adding strainers?

Thanks for your input.
