What would you call this...

Sorry, I need to order a cover for a cockpit drain that comes out my hull above the water line. It's stainless, has three screws that hold it in place, and keeps water from backing up in it when moving forward. I thought it would be a scupper cover but not finding anything listed like that.

Re: What would you call this...

How about trying something like "drain flow director"? I've found "dumbing down" search words seems to help. Good luck with it.

Thanks for the suggestion Ann. It didn't work

I'll try that. It functions like this except it's just a surface mounted half dome cover made out of stainless with three screws that hold it to the fiberglass

Re: What would you call this...

I googled "scupper valve" and "deck drain flapper" both seemed to get same hits for a "scupper flapper" https://www.google.com/search?q=scup...+flapper+valve

Re: What would you call this...

Thanks, I checked that also. This cover doesn't have a flapper or ball in it. It just keeps splashing water from going up the drain through hull.

Do you have a Pic of the drain exit that you are covering?
