Deck fill (waste) GB36

I am in need of a bronze (waste) deck fill for mu GB 36 1982. Just had the teak deck removed and now the deck fill that was put on at some point in the past, no longer fits. The original one for the boat had about 41/2" flange. Does anyone know where I might purchase one, new or used (preferred)?

Thanks
Neil Hunt

The only deck fitting for my blackwater tank is for sucking the waste out and not to fill. My BW deck fitting is the same size as the fuel and water fill fittings, but then I haven't a GB.

Same size as these fuel-loading fittings; for scale, the stanchion is 1.25" diameter:

Deck Fill for GB 36

Thanks for your reply.
My two fuel fill deck plates are the same size has my waste tank pump out fittings
the flange that attaches to the deck are 41/2 ". The problem is that the opening on the teak deck is smaller than the opening going thru the FG portion of the deck. Now that I don't have the teak to take up the extra space, the waste deck plate no longer fits. So far down here in Fl I have not been able to locate the deck fitting that I need. West Marine and others seem to only sell the new "standard" size deck plates.

Some thoughts:

1. Visit Grand Banks Owner's Resources
Ask for your deck fittings there. Occasionally a GB will be parting out and
fittings may be found. Bob Lowe is the resident expert.

2. Visit www.forums.grandbanksowners.org
Ask there. Mike Negley is the resident expert.

3. Contact the Grand Banks web site and go to their parts section. You'll
probably end up calling them and getting a price....go back to 1 or 2!!!

4. Don't call it a fill.

Deck Pipe is the term to use.
I think I'm confused, do you need one with a 4.5 inch flange or a larger one?

GB deck pipe (waste)

Thanks for your reply.
As I have been looking thru all the catalogs they all seem to call it "deck plate fill" I have never called it that, but it seems to be what everyone else is calling it so I must be wrong!
Anyway, I am looking for a 4 1/2" flange with a 1 1/2" hose connection. In bronze.

if you can't find the 4.5 inch you need, could you cover the hole with a piece of Starboard and use a smaller fitting? Buck Algonquin makes one in bronze with a 3.75 inch flange.

Try searching with the words "gun metal" instead of "bronze". It will open up a lot more chandlery sites. Davey makes a 4.5" generic fill sans barb.
