They are, but need to be kept watertight or things soon rust, fail, corrode etc.

Depending on the cost of one the club may be interested.

Thanks for your help guys, I've found some I think. Would have grudged spending 125 on some drainpipe and a few fittings!! Will let you know the final cost when the bits arrive (and if it survives on the boat) if anyone else is interested. Thanks again. Mick.

Good call but a little too short I'm afraid. Thanks anyway.
