LTR engine breather valve?

Hi everyone.. The plastic tube that is epoxyed to the flame arrestor looks like it has cracked down the middle and fallen apart.. It looks like the one in pic in this thread:
http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=51927

I would post a pic of mine, but the boat is at the upholstery shop right now having some work done.

Any advice on what to do, or where to get a replacement?

Thanks
Mike

Does anyone know what the purpose of this tube is? Does it pretty much suck fumes into the flame arrestor?

Allows fresh air to be sucked from flame arrestor into engine for the pcv system, by all accounts you could just go get a breather from the auto parts and put in the valve cover where the original goes and it'll do the same job.
