Am I right to think that your engine is out at the moment? If so go with copper Ni pipe. They meet the coding and are safer. I find it is so much easier bending and fixing Cu Ni piping because it wants to hold its shape. If you have the engine in place, what Pete7 says makes sense because itís a b****r getting down in font of the engine.

Also Cu NI pipe is cheap

Will go copper then as i dont even own an engine at the moment - ive got all the space in the world to play with so neither method really bothers me. Was just looking for the best option.

Thanks

Just being a bit of an "anorak" here, but for information, if anyone's at all interested ... the Cupro Nickels 10-30% Ni are better at resisting corrosion in high velocity salt water applications up to 15 Fps but in the Galveston Bay tests at 1-2 Fps the corrosion rate between CuNi and Cu was identical.....Yeah, yeah I know!...I'll get my coat..TAXI

And this is a P22 rescuing the Canadian Sub I think it had some help but it still had to do the tricky stuff

If you saw how rough it was on the news you have to admire those submarine chaps, it must have been rolling to 50 or 60 degrees, not nice in an open boat but stuffed inside a steel tube
It turns out that we sold the Canadians this Sub wonder if they got an AA inspection first.
