Default Fuel tank vent

Need a new fuel tank vent for the Wellcraft. I would unscrew the cover off to fill the tank faster and forgot to put it back on. The smashed the baffle against the pier before I got a new cover. So now I just have a unprotected hole and when I take waves on that side making headway it forces water into the tank. Any recommendations on where to get one from? Doesn't have to match factory equip. What styles work best?

Attwood Marine Fuel Tank Vent - Straight

Patented splash-resistant, corrosion-resistant polypropylene. Meets ABYC ventilation specifications. All Attwood fuel tank vents meet or exceed U.S. Coast Guard regulations.
Hose Size 5/8" ID
Max Hull Thickness 5/8"
Hole Size 7/8"

I had trouble with water getting in my tanks through the vents. These fixed the problem. Also, be sure to create a long enough connector line so that you have an "inverted U" formed by the connector line. This will insure water is not splashing back into your tanks.
