Thanks Tom, I did check eBay but was unable to find one with the requirements I need. Wish my sink wasn't sideways - there were a ton I could have used..

Well, I found one but the measurements and such couldn't be any trickier. On the ones for regular sinks all I found were measured without including the base pipe as part of the spout reach which makes sense to me. On the marine one I looked at they measured from the back of the base to the end of the spout. A couple inches makes a big difference when your sink is such a tiny one.

Anyway, I ended up ordering a kinda pricey one but it was the only one I could find of the right size with the one handle besides that lovely $600 one. Thanks to everyone for the help!

So, the father put the boy on the donkey's back and they went on.
When they passed by a group of men, one said, "That's boy must be too lazy. He rides while his father walks."
So, the father asked his boy to get off, and he rode on the donkey.
On the way, two women saw them, and one said, "What a shame for that old man to let the child walk!"
So, the father took the boy up to ride with him.
But passersby then began saying, "Poor little donkey!"
So, the man and his son got off. This time they got a bamboo pole, tied the donkey's feet to it and carried the ends of the pole on their shoulders.
Then people they met began laughing at them. They were on the market bridge when one of the donkey's feet got loose and began kicking.
The boy dropped his end of the pole. And the donkey fell into the water and was drowned.

Moral Lesson: "Please all and you please none."
Oh THAT story of the old man, the boy and the donkey! I'd forgotten it

I won't live my life based on woulda/shoulda/coulda. I decide to make a decision and be happy about it! YMMV

I agree Donna. This is what I call "Biting the Bullet."
I'm a bargain hunter with lots of patience. But if it's
something I have to have, I bite the bullet and get it.

And for a FYI ....... this is what we did to ours because
the stock faucet was getting water everywhere when we used it.

Carl, splash happens because the water spout wasn't right over the top of the drain... if it's not, well... you know what happens. It's actually a pretty common occurance because if the faucet is mounted 1/4-1/2 inch off...SPLASH.

Looks like you found a GREAT solution to the problem

Faucet I used.

When I pulled out my hand pump and city water faucets I used this as a replacement. Works slick and I also added a water pump at the time. It used the hole that the city water faucet occupied on the left. This is on a Trillium Outback. Price was pretty good too...
