Owning an OA I fully agree that the 1-1/2 fitting do not work. They are too small. Some OA have a 1-1/2 for those that don't have the 1-1/2 what seems to work for me is similar to the Edson Item Number: 272QC-150. The one that has the yellow disk and or the 1-1/2" screw in style don't work for us.
Another company makes a cone / funnel that does not have ridges works very well on my boat. The pump out near me has one and I have to get the manufacture part number and order one to keep on the boat.
Some OA have a fitting size that is about 2" who makes one that size?

True...but you have to keep a tapered fitting jammed tight into the fitting to keep a seal...whereas a "universal" threaded fitting will seal and will cam lock onto any pumpout hose.

My black-tank deck fitting is the same size/appearance as the six fuel and water inlets on the boat. Thankfully, they are labeled/engraved.

The state of WA sent me a free universal screw in adapter last year for the asking in order to get more boaters to pump out. Works great and way less potential for a spray than with the tapered nozzle.

I don't think anyone disagrees that the threaded adapters are preferred. The problem is that the commercially available adapters don't fit a significant number of boats that utilize different thread patterns.

The question that was originally posed was from one of the unfortunate with "different" threads on his deck fittings. For those of us in that camp, we have two choices; 1) fabricate a custom adapter that matches the deck threads, or 2) use one of the cone adapters and hold it in place while pumping out.

20+ years boating in the Puget Sound and never needed an adaptor. In fact for the last 10+ years don't have a cap. The pump out and boats have the universal cone nozzel. The Everett marine has their employees pump the boats out if you call. We are set for every Thursday.

Well then you're set for life. As long as you never cruise anywhere but there.
