Default end piece of bilge hose?

Hey guys, I took this off the end of my bilge hose. as you can see from the pic, the end piece is broken so it doesn't stay in place in the hole for water to leave my boat.
Does anyone know the name of this piece or/and where to get one?
thanks for your attention in advance...

That’s a “through hull” fitting.

Yep thru hull fitting. West Marine, Defender, any boat supply shop or on line, just google it. Youíll need the OD, size of hole.

When I replace mine the AC and shower sump were smaller than I could find. I found fittings at West Marine that accepted the hoses but had to open the holes in the hull.

The original through-hulls are nylon, which is not UV resistant. As a result, they start to get very brittle over time and exposure. IF you rub the through hull vigorously and get a chalky residue it is beyond time to replace that through hull.

I would opt for Marelon as a replacement. Marelon is a bit more money than nylon, but significantly less money than Stainless or bronze. However, Marelon is UV resistant and will not become brittle over time.
