Sounds like the hose is too long. Just automotive heater hose. Should be able to trim the length by the sound of it.
And it's Alpha (that's probably the only "real" help I can offer)
Good Luck with it.

I had the same problem on mine when I bought my boat. The original hose didn't look good so I replaced it with heater hose. BAD MOVE! Took the boat out one afternoon and the engine over heated. The alarm system wasn't working so when I saw where the temp guage was I shut down. Result was 2 cracked heads and a lot of water in the engine. Oh yeah, I replaced the hose with the Merc hose. It is the proper length and hte walls are a lot stiffer. And I also rebuilt the engine.
