Stainless Steel Rose Joint?

Does anyone know where I could source them?
I have found supply for non stainless steel, but I need stainless.
It is for an outboard motor lowering device/mount which I am designing to put on the back of my sailboat. Attached is a picture of one, but it isn't stainless.
I found one match for rose joint in a search of our forum.
Avoiding Electrolysi
About halfway down.
5/8" ID would likely be the right size.

Help would be great.

If you can't find one... give your local machinist a call. You might be surprised at how inexpensive it might be to have it custom made for you. Or you'll decide you can deal with a cheap replaceable steel one.

Have it Machined

You'll likely spend far more time and money looking for ones that just right. I'd recommend finding a machine shop in your area and have some built. In my own shop, all CNC, we build these types of items all the time. If the ID is .625 I would say the OD is around 1.5. Most shops would take a piece of round stock, slip it in a lathe, true one end, center drill it to fit, cut the shoulders and cut it off. This is a simple project, don't spend more time trying to source it, just have it made!
