Split ducting

Looking for some of the above to tidy cabling on deck.

Anyone have a few metres in a corner they want to sell...ideally around 2 inch diameter ish?

Don't really want to de rig the boat/engine...hence looking for split.

Thanks

Pete

Dont know if its any help but I bought a Miele vacuum hose to do mine. I ordered a grey one to match the hull, and split it easily with scissors.

Edit: Diameter is about 40mm

I have done the same with 40 & 50mm Black commercial vacuum hose but found it opens up when slit (quite a lot on the 40mm) and needed lots of cable ties to hold it back together. It was silly cheap though, heat it with a hot air gun and hold it closed until it cools also works.

Thanks guys . I've had enough of vacuuming my house with the Miele anyway .

I know I've had bigger split dcuting on old boats but need it to be about 40mm - which google isn't helping me find .

Think I'll go for spiral wrap - its not as neat - but is cheaper .....
