On a Sailfish, does anyone know how to replace the Port cockpit drain hose that goes to the through-hull? I saw somewhere that if you remove the batteries and hire a small child it was feasible. I'd like to think that Grady White would have kept this in mind (hose replacement, not small children) when they designed the boat.

The port side is likely doable for a pliable small frame person. The only access is via the floor hatch and the trash box area. Not going to be fun.
On the starboard side, you likely have to cut a hatch in the floor before the rear fish door. I don't know of another way. To answer your question - unfortunately no.

I'm not familiar with the Sailfish layout, but am currently replacing cockpit, baitwell, and other floor drains throughout my Gulfstream. What I wanted to say to you is that rear cockpit drains on this boat are two part. lower elbow drain that attaches to drain hose, which can be preattached to hose, then reached under floor and held under hole in floor location, then top part/strainer can be screwed into the lower part. Not sure if this will help you or not. here is a link showing one example of the type on my Gulfstream. https://www.replacementboatparts.com/antisloshdeckdrain.aspx

Interesting, in following the link and looking at their other offerings, the 5-spoke SS drain similar to what Grady is using now is available here as well.
