Default 2017 Crownline 236 SC pressure hose to speedometer disconnected

HELP PLEASE! Launched boat for the 1st time this season and noticed the speedometer was not working. After having the boat in the water for two (2) days, I noticed several gallons of water in the bilge, which has never happened prior. Doing the math (2 + 2) I figured the rubber pressure hose from the Bravo 3 to the speedometer was disconnected. I pulled out the gages at the helm and yes, there was a disconnect. There is about a 8" section of the rubber hose connected to the speedometer and then there is a plastic splice. The hose back to the outdrive is disconnected from the splice. I assumed it would be a simple task to reconnect the rubber hose. But no. I can not find the hose. I assume it must have fallen down somewhere, where I can not see it or grab it. Without a service manual I am at a loss. The dealer can not make the service call until June 1st, but we have company coming and I do not want to wait.

Any ideas on how to locate the speedometer hose that disconnected from the speedometer? I would think it has to be somewhere near the helm?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Not sure about your boat, but my speedo hose was run under the gunwale and zip tied to the shifter cable.

I will take a look. Yesterday, I was in a hurry to get the boat out of the water. When I have more time, I will try again to find the loose hose. It could not have gone too far?

Sounds pretty silly but I've had luck finding and picking up small hoses and objects in tight areas with a skinny pole with duct tape on the end. If you fish around enough sometimes the tape is sticky enough to grab onto whatever you are looking for. Sorry...that's all I got!! The guys on here are a lot smarter than I am.

It actually worked for me last weekend pulling a football out of an 8 foot deep storm drain...LOL. I then strutted around the neighborhood making sure I told everyone about my awesome Dad maneuver.

I just ordered a USB endoscope / borescope inspection camera for my Android. Maybe this will help me find the loose hose that has dropped.

Do you have a cup holder by the shifter. Remove it and feel around. If you can't get it done and have to wait just disconnect at the drive. Quarter turn and your done.
