Funnel for Raincatcher & Thru-Hull Handle

I am looking for two items. The first is a funnel I can stitch into a sun cover. It will allow me to collect the rain water from the sun cover and channel it into jerry jugs or other storage. I've seen them, but can't find one. Anyone have any leads?

The second item is a handle for a 3/4" ball valve thru-hull. Most of the handles have a tab in line with the handle that hits the stops. The handle I need to replace has that tab offset from the long axis of the handle (if that makes any sense). I've tried to post a photo with our camera, but the camera doesn't do macro photography. Hopefully you can get the idea and lead me to some sources.

Thanks very much.

We just put a 1" thru-hull in our awning. Pull it down with a line tied to the hand rail and worked perfectly. Only took a hole punch to install

The seacock is fine. The valve works fine. The handle is corroded/rusted real bad and needs replacing. The handle has corroded because it is in the head and I think the acid from and around the head might have accelerated the corrosion.

The boat is new to me and I am trying to upgrade stuff I see. We had the boat out the whole month of Dec. We checked all the thru-hulls then and they all worked fine....and still do!

This is what I use. String it up under the boom with sail up or over the boom with sail down. You can run the hose right into the tank.



I use the 7' X 7'.
