Re: additional cockpit drains...

Any ideas on what to use for the drain itself, that is, the part that is attached to the floor of the cockpit? I was thinking about shower drains - stainless steel, meant to be walked on, etc. Comments?

Or what about mounting the drains on the aft wall of the cockpit? Is there a square fitting/flange that would work?

John
