It looks very like the insert that is used to sink the fuel filler into a console used the wrong way?

Just been trying to find one for sale online without success but I am sure any of the major RIB manufactures can supply one.

Both of those are open ended and look a little small.

Thanks Jeff but as wd suggests a little small ,now i am seeing the logic ,i realise even my ribcraft filler would work as the conduit would go over where the fuel pipe normally jubilee clips on , if i remember rightly PD had one for sale on here a while ago ,i thought about buying as a spare but i think it sold ,also found an old post on here saying outhill were too dear and a member on here from leighton buzzard was making them cheaper for canal boats i think ,but cant relocate that post just now !

I was looking for one some years ago these guys have a mold and offered to make one for me, didn't take them up on the offer as I managed to locate one in a local chandlers.

Thankyou everyone for help on this one ,ended up getting a little carried away ,have decided to "Go Large " ,loads of room there so considered fitting a rear bench seat box but couldnt find anything suitable so have sourced a single jockey seat ,which i plan to fit fuel filter inside and also bought rigging kit ,will fit new hydraulic steering at the same time which should tidy up the current situation ,just got to get my head round derigging the engine to enable me to thread cables and harnesses through the new routing , hope to put up a before and after picture if succesful , have decided not to upholster the jockey as i think it will prove multipurpose for fishing and snacking ,and will still suffice as a perch should i need a third seat .planning this week hopefully !

Just a couple of pictures of how this ended up ,decided not to fit hydraulic steering at the moment,and forgot to take before picture ,but here is as finished picture , .....couple of reservations as i originally cut oak base to upholster in ribcraft style ,however when thinking about it ,thought that if i left it flat oak it would double as picnic /bait prep area and would still provide perch for the odd occasion i carry three .fitted quicksilver tank connector on filter outlet so can unplug and onto spare tank should i run out of fuel or have a tank contamination issue ,also have a foam fishing cushion that is carried inside and velcro on if used as a seat
started off as a tidy up exercise but finished up as quite a few gains ,
