Bow tank pick-up tubes

Does anyone know of a company that makes pick-up and discharge tubes / valves suitable for bow tanks for ribs? I have seen many home-made devices but most are rather Heath-Robinson looking. I believe some racing boats use a professionally made device which operates on a slide on the transom with remote cable control. But where can it be got from?

You might try Graham Jelly of Scorpion who fits them to some models he makes.
Alternatively "Nick" who was Scorpion's tube maker, who now runs his own company and posts on this forum.
