Source for Galley Sinks

I'd like to replace the ROUND galley sinks in my boat (why anyone would ever install round sinks, I will never understand). Anyone know where to find unusual sized sinks? Specifically, I'm looking for one that is maximum 17 inches wide (front to back) and about 30 inches +/- long, stainless steel, double or single bowl.

I've tried the home centers (Home Depot and Lowes), and searched the common manufacturer's web sites (Kohler, Elkay, etc.). The problem is longer kitchen sinks are too wide and less-wide bar sinks are too short in length. Skandvik Marine is close, but they max out at 24 inches in length.

Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks.

We just did a kitchen (not galley) remodel and my wife looked a number of small sinks at the usual places (Home Depot, Lowes, etc). They were sold as preparation or prep sinks. Not in stock but they could order them. Guess it depends on how small you want. Here's a couple of links to smaller sinks.

These guys have a good selection of double sinks. I'm not sure they sell retail but in this economy those rules might get a little bent. If not I'm sure they can point you to a retailer.

Ambassador Marine - Stainless Steel Sinks & Accessories

If you have room under the counter, consider a deep sink like their 10". Holds a lot more and doesn't slosh as badly underway.

Try a mobile home/RV supply.

E-bay is another good source. I found a German sink for my Ingrid. It was a sink and drain-board in one.
