deck drains

Hi
Does anybody know where i can buy 3 of these from?http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ONE-WAY-DECK-D...3A1|240%3A1318

I've searched the web everwhere but can't find any.
I have three 4m seariders that are kept afloat permanently on a lake and get fed up of users leaving the trunk down and coming to use the boat and find it is flooded as a result. I'm after something that is foolproof and have used these before and have been very happy with them. When I've used them on the sea before they have started to leak a bit after time when they get covered in weed and barnicles but as we don't have that problem on fresh water I'm thinking they'll be just the job.

thanks

graham

There are also the "ducks bill" ones which are also a form of one way valve, both can suffer from having stuck in them and allowing water in, I would not fit them to a hard boat on a mooring or a boat that will not stand being filled with water, but they will work very well with a deck above water level.

Was wondering, could one of these fit over the rear hole on a searider's flooding hull? I've read that even when blocked off, the hull can still get water in but can't get back out. Ones of these sound like a good solution.

Blocking the hull off on a SR and fitting a small brass plug would sort the problem, any water which does enter can be drained off.
