Default Looking for a 3/4" 3-way ball valve or y-valve

I am havng trouble finding a valve for my raw water washdown project. I want to run both fresh and raw water off one pump. A 3-way valve ahead of the pump will swicth between the fresh water source and raw water source. Hose size is 3/4". I would prefer on valve so I dont accidentally mix fresh and raw sending salt water into my fresh water tank. One that mounted inside my console with the lever on the outside would be the ticket but I cant seem to find anything that will work. Any suggestions appreciated. I am going to to plumbing supply house tomorrow.

That almost sounded dirty.

Go down the page aout half way to number 2161. Thats the closest I have found and I would have to reduce it down for the 3/4" tubing.

Conbraco/ Apollo makes them in many sizes. You can get them all over. West has them part# 185506. All bronze with a SS ball and SS handle.

Dadyo, it will be mounted in my console. There is a saecock on the through hull supplying raw water.

Captddis, thanks man...I looked all through their catalogue and stopped by the store. They had no idea.
