If the bottom end is shot, you have a problem.  The radius of the 
turn is critical or the hose runs right into a unit mounted above it. 
 I think one could easily make an adaptor for the smaller end of the 
hose, but not for the larger end - because of the turn.

Those prices sound really high...for my 1990 200, the hose was $48
