sure.. but inexpensive, but effective option is.. the hydraulic pipe lines of a lorry or a bus.. can take from replaced or discared.. or can buy new for a little money.. stiff.. strong.. lasts for a lifetime.. and can also add a greasing tube by soldering.. a vertical tube easily..  Thumbs Up

Alok.. one of the easy and effective way to make a water tight stuff tube for boats is straight from ball point pen bodies with brass bushings.. 99% of my boats are equipped with this idea, and most of them are working in daily basis, from Academies, and Engineering colleges.. and i am already posted a detailed build log on this after knowing its goodness and reliablity.. inexpensive but 1000% effective.. here is the link..
