Default SeaWorthy Sea/Mini audio jack

Anyone know where I can get one of these? I bought one about a year ago at BoatersWorld, but they don;t have them anymore. I've checked Jim's site as well as a few other online vendors with no luck.

For those of you who are unfamilair, this is a rubberized, 1/8" mini jack surface mount input with RCA outputs. It's used to run a line in, from an iPod for example, to a head unit's auxillary inputs and has a little rubber plug to fill the jack when not in use. There are many home made alternatives, but for only $20 this is failry good looking and pretty waterproof.

Polyplanar has a more compact unit if you want a flush mount. http://www.polyplanar.com/pdf/IC-3_5sheet.pdf

I had the seaaworthy unit and still have it on my dash - like this way much more - this is the apple a/v cord and it requires a very small hole and you can slip a piece of heat shrink over it and it retracts into the hole but won't go thru - eliminates the large cord used with the seaworthy...

You guys are lucky you don't have a 2.5mm output like my Treo has. Made things a bit interesting to say the least and I found out you can't get RCA cables with a 2.5mm plug.

Thanks guys. The Polyplanar jack looks perfect - even better than the Seaworthy, which was a little trickier to mount.

Glen,
Nice job with your cable. It woouldn't work for me, however, because I'm using the jack for an iPod but also for the audio output from a portable DVD player that uses a 4 conduter mini plug that I split into audio and video. It would just take an extra cable anyway (or a female/female coupler) to adapt your setup to work.
