Potable Water Pipe

After doing somework on my potable (fresh water) system I went to the hardware store to pick up some lengths of pipe. Low and behold they no longer make the pipe....polybutaline? the flexable gray pipe. What have others used to pipe fresh, pressurized fresh water system to faucetts, etc? What kind of fittings did you use? I heard of CPVC being used but isn't this kinda stiff for a boat? Want to install myself, handy with tools and done most of the work on the boat myself. Any suggestions? By the way it's an O'Day 35.

Thanks!
