I found that Johnson (not perko) makes a stainless flush deck hose connector that connects under full pressure with a bayonet. Has a rotating cover. Donovan marine sells it. Putting on my Santa list

Hi Vlad,
Yes, the locker has to be open or the hose gets pinched.  It's not ideal, but no new hole in the deck.  I don't use the original washdown nozzle at the bow roller at all.  When single handing I tie the nozzle on the rail while I go to the cockpit to turn the pump on.  It's a powerful jet that is like a big spitting snake when loose on the deck.

Once an inexperienced crew accidentally turned the pump on when cleaning by the helm.  By the time I discovered it, the bow lockers were almost full of sea water!  But the boat was on the waterline for the first time ever!
