Seeking Ball Valves lever on L450

I am trying to obtain a valve lever for the valve which switches between the port and starboard water tanks on my Lagoon 450. In the mean time I have cannibalised from the valve under the sink which selects between fresh and salt for the foot pump. Anyone know I can obtain either a new lever or simply a whole new valve as a spare. Haven't been able to track one down in Australia but back to Spain shortly so could possibly order one there?
Thanks!
Here is a pic to aid identification - AA battery just to show scale!

get a Vice Grip and leave it on the valve or in a drawer nearby. You might find a handle here: Ball Valves, Nozzle Valves & Check Valves


Banjo valves offer many options for marine use.

Doubt you will buy just the valve lever.
It is just a 316 S/S 3 way ball valve, you can even buy off of Flea Bay.
Leave the lever swap in place and just replace the under sink fresh/salt one, a lot easier to get to and swap out.

Thanks for the advice! I guess if I can't track down the manufacturer to replace like for like I will use an easier to obtain brand
