Several websites that have that stuff. Just google around and have it shipped to ya. Much cheaper then buying from the stores.

Welcome aboard!

Get the chrome on brass, Zamak will corrode in a few years.

This is what I used to replace the fuel vent on my Explorer:

http://www.duskyonline.com/50-23061-p-fuel-vents.html

The hole size is 1 3/8" diameter so I had to open up the hole (mine was 1" as well) a tad using a drill and grinding stone or small drum. Was an easy install and this is a high quality, good looking part that should last as long as I own the boat.

Have the same vent installed on mine. Nice design, clean and looks good....and won't ship water while you are running.
