Bilge Outlet Fitting

I'm currently in the planning stages of fitting a bilge pump to my boat, as it didn't have one when I bought it.

The transom is roughly 4.5 - 5cm thick (just under 2 inches) and I can't find an outlet fitting with a thread this long - my local chandler is trying to find a specialist part, however does anyone know where I can source one? preferably online? I've seen them on Ribcrafts so I know it can be done on a RIB (unless Ribcraft's have narrower transoms?)

This is the type of fitting I'm after. The thread on the front of the fitting needs to be at least 2 inches long, so that I can securely fasten the 90 degree elbow on to it, once it's cleared the transom.

Grateful for any help,

Cheers

Guy

The threaded part looks he same as certain plastic waste fittings . I needed a similar part a while back and found it at a plumbers merchant. , for a couple of quid.

Hi I recently had this problem and could not find a plastic part that did the job. Instead I used a setup like this one on ebay, it looks much better that the plastic version mine is actually crome not brass however I am sure this will look just as good....
