Source of deeper stainless sink

Has anyone found a deeper stainless steel sink that would be feasible to install in a 19? If so, could you point us in the right direction? We’d like to get a 7” or 8” deep stainless sink, if possible, instead of the 5 incher standard in the Escape. I've been looking online in both sailboat galley and bar sink pages but haven't found a keeper. Any guidance?

Glenn

One word of caution with a deeper (or larger in any way) sink, is that if you intend to fill it, you will use up your fresh water, and fill the grey tank, faster. This does not matter if you are always hooked up to campground services, but as we rarely are it is something we watch a lot.

Thanks Jim. Had considered that. As long time sailors, we're accustomed to conserving water (although maybe the foot pump contributed to that a lot). I think the main purpose is to get the dishes/pots into the sink rather than to fill it. But your point is well taken.

You'll also lose some storage space under the sink.

We have the Escape supplied stainless steel sink. Unless weather is poor, we prefer to use a small wash tub and do our dishes outside. This also allows us to get rid of the dishwater without dumping it into the grey tanks, thus extending the possible duration of stays while boondocking. If you are in a campground with sewer connections, that would not be an issue.

I bought one of these to use outside when I can, wash in one, rinse in other using the spigot. Takes up little storage
