Best place to buy bronze street and ball valves - local?

Looking for local recommendations for bronze gear to replace my PVC. Gutted my entire ballast system in my 03 x30 and now I have a 1" hole in the bottom of my boat! Thanks, Chad

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Since you are in Virginia, try Ferguson. Apollo ball valves are top of the line, but they also carry cheaper versions.

Just be sure to understand difference (and cost) of bronze vs. brass. Wakemakers sells the naval bronze stuff and when I priced similar items they were not much cheaper anywhere else. Brass stuff is available everywhere and cheap compared to bronze.
