Question Sink Strainer for Island Gypsy

We have an Island Gypsy 32 with a single sink in the galley. I need to replace the strainer. Are the sinks a standard size? I tried a 1 1/2" to 2" rubber plug but it doesn't fit. As to how I wash dishes, I keep turning them around and wiping them off in the tiny sink until they're clean and dry them on a sink mat.

The strainer on our IG is a standard, bar sink size. Also the size of a wash room sink. Smaller than the standard kitchen sink. About one and a quarter inch.

When we first got our boat I swapped out the 5" deep sink with a 10" deep same brand. Made a big difference in usability.

We have what I think is the original strainer which also acts as a plug and is rotated to allow drainage. The one in the head basin is similar but smaller. Without measuring, looks like about 2.5 inches across. Not long ago I had to do a s/steel wire winding to re-secure the plastic knob on the shaft.
I think you just have to measure up and visit your hardware store to get separate strainer and plug.

Does this look like it?

2 in. Bar Sink Strainer in Polished Stainless-I5586-SS at The Home Depot

They are typically standard size "bar sink" strainers on most small boats until large enough to accommodate standard sized "kitchen basket" strainers.
