1) This is not the normal stock item found in many catalogs and online stores. Its 1-3/8" spigot length is a unique match to the original part used by Catalina Yachts. Unfortunately they are no longer in use by Catalina, Their original stock is exhausted and therefore we must have this port custom made.

2) A 50% nonrefundable deposit will be billed when your order for this custom made product is accepted. The balance will be billed when the product ships.

3) When you order a special order item it sets off a chain of events like Willie Wonka in the chocolate factory. Once you turn the valve the chocolate is coming down the pipe. If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time!
