I discovered that Skandvik makes an adapter to go from 1 1/2" to 1 1/4" threads. I just ordered one, hopefully it will do the trick.

Thanks for the tips!

Because of the size jump you might have to use multiple fittings but it can be done.

Galley Sink Drain Dilemma

When I purchased my boat (Spirit 28), both the galley and sink drains were plumbed to the through hulls via a mashup of household plumbing, adapters, hoses, and glue. I didn't much like the looks of all that, so I've since been in search of an elegant way to connect a sink drain to a hose.

I finally solved the head sink (found a drain fitting designed for a 1 1/4 hole, with a 3/4" hose barb), but I've been unable to find a solution for my galley sink, which has a 3 1/2" hole (same size as a household kitchen sink).

Problem is that household kitchen sink drains have a 1 1/2" threaded connection, and I haven't been able to find a 1" hose barb connector that fits a 1 1/2" connection (1 1/4" connectors are commonplace).

Here are the possible solutions, as I see it:

1. Find a fitting that has a 1" hose barb on one end, and a 1 1/2 threaded connector on the other.
2. Find a marine sink drain that fits a 3 1/2" drain hole, with a 1" hose barb.
3. Install a new sink with a 2 7/16 drain hole.

I'd prefer option 1 or 2 -- does such an animal exist, and if so, does anyone know of a source?
