Think they got the last one in UK and this was fitted by GT marine earlier this week. Saw your rib in Sark for rowing race so guess this failed either on Sat or Sun??


GT said they have had a few of these go over last few years for no apparent reason. BTW (900 for parts 300 labour ouch)

Ah yes saw the one at GT, did exactly the same as mine. Price is a bit much, they're 400 from USA, labour is free if you're capable of doing up 4 bolts

It happened on the way into Sark but sod it I thought, just carried on!

Found one! A place called American Marine, they have a warehouse in the US as well as UK. Apparently they carry a huge stock in the US which obviously the UK depot can call upon.

Also a fair amount less than RRP through a Mercury dealer
