I recently installed all new bronze seacocks and while removing the plumbing to my galley sinks the supposedly quality plastic drains that were only 1 year old broke way too easy. Being as my waterline is just a few inches below the drains it doesn't seem wise for me to be using plastic. Any recommendations for quality stainless 1-1/2" drains?

1/1/2" male thread or even better hose barb.

Thanks

Re: Quality stainless sink drains

Good to find that stuff at your own discretion. I first thought of these guys. You should have their address anyway - Everything but the kitchen sink.

Marine Part Depot

Re: Quality stainless sink drains

I did find Stainless drains made for home sinks or bar sinks for one of my boats that had the same issue... waterline just below the drain. The Bar sink drains are small. I cant remember how I adapted them but figured it out.... also check RV places.

Re: Quality stainless sink drains

Got mine at Home Depot. Had to hunt around for the right PVC adapter to get it to a hose barb but the drains are sturdy and the PVC adapter is heavy duty.

Anybody try these? http://ambassadormarine.com/search.p...1-0308-(series) Odor free? I have seawater in my lines just a few inches from the drains. Would a contraption like this not be a benefit?


Actually after having a second look at it.
If the thing leaked I could be screwed.
Best to KISS and find stainless.

Re: Quality stainless sink drains

Does anyone else have trouble with this? I have followed the link below several times. It takes me to mcmaster.com web site and directly to a search for sink drains in stainless.

Re: Quality stainless sink drains

Works for me, N58, straight there

Actually I just inserted your name in another thread (on unattended anchoring) ... I thought you might have an answer to a tricky and interesting question from steve / Panope.

(ON EDIT: OP, check your browser settings: it may be refusing to redirect - in some browsers a message pops up in an inconspicuous way, to alert you and ask if you wish to override.

Failing that, try copying this and pasting it into the address bar, (you may have to add the www.)

I can't for the life of me figure if this item is stainless.
It's Sunday so calling the distributor isn't an option.
Also, straight or tapered threads?

Thanks

My guess: PVC with stainless accents:

Scandvik Marine Inc. - Products

Model: 10313 Fits 2-1/16" drain hole openings.
1-1/2" threaded outlet. Includes basket, stopper and chain
Straight down threaded outlet. Use our reducers or straight extension pipes to adapt to necessary end fittings.
Material: 304 Stainless Steel and PVC plastic

I just put two of these in my galley sinks.

The top is stainless, the bottom is plastic with a brass insert for the screw.

You can most likely find the installation instruction sheet online. Try "Ambassador sink drains" for a Google search.

I like 'em.

That's cool.
Should I assume the plastic forespar brand drain a better fiber reinforced plastic drain?

I'd go for the name brand given the consequences.

Blue crab,
Ambassador and forespar are both name brand.
And forespar uses fiber reinforced marelon plastic.
Problem is that I can't find any information for if forespar uses marelon plastic in their galley drain plastics.

Anyone know?

I sure wish I could find a full stainless drains with either 1-1/2" male threads or 1-1/2 hose barbs.
