    ASAP supplies do them, they are excellent units and fitting is basically the same as for any other.

    If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

    Why pay over the top ,try your local merchants first ,as long as you use a good sealant and don't over tighten the fitting things will be fine

    Make sure you get GRP not plastic (handles break off) and make sure you get ones that are type-approved for marine use for below-waterline thru-hull fitting or else your insurance may not pay out if they fail and your boat sinks!

    Here in the US the brand name and material name is "Marelon". These seacocks and thru-hulls are made of a black colored material that is extremely strong. Mr Hawkins was definitely correct when he said to make certain you obrtained thruhulls and valves made for and intended for below the waterline use since you certainly don't want an insurance problem or a sunken boat.
