I lined it with tin foil , then filled in the hole at the back with placticine, drilled a hole in the deck and stuck a straw in it. Bloody easy really. Suprised Avon didnt think of it really. No but seriously , some cleaver engineering bloke with loads of holiday money should give it a go. Its an idea to throw around.
