My custom water exits, what is your favorite homemade intake?

So I made these exits for my semi-scale racing boat and was wondering what you all prefer for a through hull intake that doesn’t require anything elaborate or bending tubing. I am thinking a 5/32” brass tube at 30 to 45 degrees mounted in a similar fashion to the exits but wondered if there was a better solution.

Here is the build thread;

I do not have any pics for now, but the best exit/inlet for me is a piece of 4mm tubing with a 4mm washer soldered to it. It can be soldered at an angle for the inlet, if needed, and the washer gives enough surface for a piece of glass cloth and epoxi.

Cornel,

That’s a great idea thank you very much, do you cut the end on an angle?
