Re: Yanmar 100 HP (4JH3-HTE) Exhaust Hose Replacement

I have not seen any large difference in quality between the major hose manufacturers. Shields, Trident, and Vetus all make excellent hose.  The primary difference in hose (other than size, of course!) is the choice of with wire re-enforcement or without.  The wire wrapped hoses can make significantly tighter bends without collapsing, but are otherwise similar in specifications and expected lifespan.

A possible advantage of Vetus hose is that it is made specifically to metric sizes, but in these sizes things match very closely either way.
