Anyone have thoughts? Can't get the tube to go more than 30" down from the bow due to the aggressive " key" bend on the top channel. Used soapy water but maybe I should use straight soap? Also considering making the entry key longer so the turn isn't so sharp. I'll gladly welcome anyone's pie in the sky thoughts!

You can try a better Lubricant like Gordy suggests....which has got to help!...
The fact you are asking for hints on a Forum would indicate to me it's one of those times to "Bite the Bullet" call in the Cavalry...and pay for some professional help..
(I certainly would NOT recommend modifying the Hull in any way until it's been seen by a pro!)
A) to sort the enpass..and B) to make sure this fundamental part of the build is 100% right and correct...as it certainly needs to be! It may well be money well spent.
I don't know of your networking scope...or what contacts you have...but often if you know someone who knows someone,you can get this sort of thing "done on the side" by a Pro in his off time....in the process save a packet ($) and potentially a lot of grief (or potentially catastrophic failure) down the line.Good luck.
