flexible tubing to PVC fitting/adapter

Hey fellas. New member here. I am installing a homemade livewell in my Jon boat, but I have a little bit of a problem. The outlet on the pump requires using 3/4" inside diameter flexible tubing and a ring clamp, but I want the majority of my plumbing to be done in PVC for durability reasons. I would like to use a few inches of flexible tubing coming from the pump, and then transistion into PVC. How can I adapt from the flexible tubing to PVC? I drew a quick sketch of what I am envisioning in my head, and I tried looking at the Home Depot for something like that, but I didn't see anything. So...what do I need to do?

Take the pump with you to your local plumbing supply place or hardware store, tell them what you're trying to accomplish, and i bet they come up with something that will work. It's always easier to explain what you need when you have a part of the project in front of you
