2 inch filler pipe

hello all, i'm looking for a 90 to 130 degree solid bend connector for two inch petrol filler pipe to stop it from kinking. I was in my local boat shop and they had nothing big enough. They seem to think that it was the kind of size they use on ships not boats Any ideas where i could find one online of near christchurch / bournemouth ?

I think ours might be a little larger than two inch We'd be a long time in port filling up with that.....

Plastic will do fine, as long as it's not the type that's disolved by petrol! I'll have a look in there tonight on my way home.

Don't bother with plastic - stainless will do a better job.
Lots on ebay, eg:

Plastic and petrol, very sensible. You could get a s/s bend from Ferrarri's at three legged cross. probably cost you 5, but the you can't put a price on safety!
