.

I gave up looking and decided to make one. I used 1" 1/2 stainless with a sliding 1" 3/8 insert welded to a cut down 90 degree fixing and then used the tread off a scupper i had. I went for just a pick up not a pick up and dump. got 2 rule 2000 gallon pumps to empty the tank. cost me £20 to have welded together and an hour going through the strap bin. come out ok i think

IMCO do a nice one, it's bigger than 1" but it's threaded so it'll adapt.....

It's doesn't dump though.

The ones on fountains actualy are closed or open so no water can go in.

I just called Reggie and he says they are build in house.. so he will shoot me a price in a few hours after talking to Wyant Fountain.

So if anybody needs anything, feel welcome to call RF powerboats !

I've just spoken to someone else who wants one of these, if you're definately after one I'll get my arse in gear and build some, it'll be about a week for me to get it sorted though if that's ok? I was thinking of doing one with all the workings inside the boat somehow, that'd look really neat and not impossible to achieve!
Are you looking to dump too from the same fitting or just pick up and dump from elsewhere?

Cheers, James

I don't think you've fully grasped how these things work!
