Best option for a small stainless fabrication job?

Who would I be best speaking to, to get a bilge pump outlet fitting made up that looks like one of these, to suit the intended pump outlet size it needs to be made with 28mm OD stainless tube.

Needs to be somebody that will either post stuff overseas or that I can pick up from somewhere in Sussex area in early August when I'm over on leave - I'll be based in Littlehampton.

Roughly what should I expect to pay for this?

Here's how I did mine just to give you another option.

Let me know which way you want to go and I'll see if I can help you. If there's no major rush then I should be able to sort something

i've done them before, mine were slightly different as the lugs to screw them down were on the top of the transom, to get tight bends like that you have to buy in knuckle elbows and weld the extra pipe to them, easy enough though

Biff is the man for this work,

I had this fitted on transom for bilge run out and Biff knew all about this type when he saw it. Tubes all connected to stainless elbow from electric and manual pump

I like the over-transom design because you can clearly see if it's pumping properly and it looks functional and neat. The old Humber just had a bit of clear pipe cable tied to the engine but I'd like Seawolf to look a little better

How much for something like that in 28mm OD marine stainless please Biffer? I'd want the mounting bracket on the front face of the transom - pretty much identical to the one in the photo.

Thanks
