The original design on all Amels for many years is as you describe it, except that you did not mention that the flexible hose is reinforced from the inside with a "PVC type" of pipe. You probably did not notice that.
Just because someone says something should be one way, does not make it right. If I were you, I would trust the original Amel concept.
I hope this helps you.
Yes Bill, in my installation there is nothing !! No thru-hull fixed to the portside, only the tube inserted into the hull and sealed (taped) with a lot of silicon and sikaflex.
Probably this happens when the previous owner changed the engine in 2007 BUT the work was followed from VOLVO dealer in Canet en Roussillon !!???!! I don't know IF this is original concept or so on....but is so far from my safety idea.

So there IS a thru-hull fitting, in the standard installation, it is just made of fiberglass. Nothing wrong with that. Its a good system.
The original poster needs to understand what to look for. IF he is wrong in his description and the fiberglass insert is missing he has a problem.
This is standard on the santorin and not a pproblem .Ive monitored ours for the last 10 yearsits still the original hose.25years old. As its Supported by a fibreglass sleeve on the inside add the fact that there is no metal reduces corosion and possible damage due to a bang. AMEL ENGINEERING..
