"Advice/Experience Replacing Metric thru hulls and ballcocks with Imperial"

I'm beginning the process of replacing my seacocks on my 2002 Lagoon 380. Those of you with Lagoons in the US know what I'm talking about, when I say that Metric sanitation pipe is near impossible to obtain in the US.

Do I buy Imperial seacocks and all new Imperial hose?? What happens at the metric end of the hose?? The Imperial hose will have a loose fit.

Anyone "been there, done that"?? What was your solution??

you could try a hydralic hose and fitting company like aeroquip they generally carry all sizes and materials,it is really your nipple size that is the issue.
