Raw Water strainer for engine

Here on the coast of Maine, USA there is a lot of sea weed.

In my Swan 37 I have a ittle in-line raw water strainer plugs up too often.  The aft side of the engine box is so tight that a large strainer won't fit.  Any recommendations and/or photos of other Swan 37 raw water strainer systems?

Thanks and we'll be sailing soon, but not soon enough:)

Hi Tom,

I think you can successfully place the strainer in the bilge, mounted to a bulkhead, and run hoses from the intake seacock to the strainer and then to the engine.  You will want to allow yourself easy access.

Fair winds.
