Hi guys, I've been hunting around to try and find a trunk for for a 40mm outlet on my transom but it's proving near impossible....

Does anyone have any good suppliers they can recommend?

Many thanks G

If you already have the fitting, just make one from either hypalon or PVC. They are made with a simple lap joint.

There was a recent topic about this IIRC but they do come up on eBay. Or why not just make one? Get a rectangle of PVC or Hypalon and roll and glue it? And a simple sandwich mount cut from ply or a synthetic chopping board.
