Stainless Kitchen sink drains
 
I need to replace the 20 some-odd year old kitchen sink drains on my boat. I looked at the "stainless" ones at Home Depot, but they were highly Magnetic. They probably won't last very long in a salty environment. Can anyone recommend a brand that they would trust?

Thanks.

Just a followup on this:

I replaced my sink drains with these scandvik drains. It has only been 5 months, but they have absolutely no rust and look to be a quality product.

With these drains do you just put a straight tailpipe on and put a hose over that with hose clamps? Why are there no barbs on sink drains? I've looked to see what the best practice is on sinks but there doesn't seem to be much info.

I have the Scandvik's also. If you buy the plumbing that is made for it you can add a barb fitting.

It screws right on the drain coupler......

If you want to go to a bigger hose, you can use a double end plastic female pipe coupler and add your desired barb. I believe it's 2" pipe threads, maybe 1-1/2", I don't remember.
