Was talking about the actual thread/nipple/nut size. I don't recall what it is, exactly, but somewhere in the 1/2" range? I was thinking the hoses would likely be interchangeable between the two systems. Could well be wrong, as a quick search shows different part numbers (though I didn't do much comparison.)

Probably true. I just know that I couldn't adjust the length on mine and had to put a loop in under-deck. 10 feet was too short and the 12 footers (which I got) were a little long.

OK. Think the operating pressure is different, at least on the seastar pro its higher. So maybe the high end tubes works on baystar but not vise versa?

The Baystar tube is rated up to 150hp no psi rate on the tube.
The Seastar hose is rated to 100psi.
The Seastar pro hose is rated to 1500psi.

They all use the same 3/8 tube thread which is 9/16x 24 tpi.

Aquafax will supply bare hose and connections to make up hoses any length you want.
