First if all, it's 4" in diameter and almost 14' long. Secondly, it goes through one bulkhead, and under the refrigeration unit and under the 220v inverter. And the fit was pretty tight. So we took a little off of the refrigeration platform with a Sawzall. Let me tell you - I was a little nervous when the Captain fired that baby up, but I was watching for wires and hoses and he proceeded slowly. And after we removed about an inch of the platform, we were able to wiggle the python out.
So tomorrow I will pick up all the new hoses and belts and this weekend we will be sweating in the bilges putting them all back.
