Engine installation Parts

A few weeks ago I asked about Selva engines. Well having seen and decided to buy a 2002 50Hp Selva Madeira, I now need to fit it in place of the very sick Yamaha 70 currently attached to the Avon 4.7 searider I have also aquired.
On stripping out the maze of wiring and control cables in the bottom of the boat I noticed a lot of grease and grunge had got into the cable tied bundle. Can anyone tell me where I can buy a suitable length of "Cable hose" to run the controls through from console to transom. American sites offer this stuff, along with brackets and glands for the ends but I can't find an english supplier willing to publicise the product.
Is there anywhere in the Yeovil or Poole areas that carry this type of installation material?
Hopefully someone on this site will know of a supplier.

Many Thanks

You could try Ribcraft in Yeovil. They have a fairly large chandlery/spares department.

Index marine (mail order) do it; they do two version "split pipe" and the normal. The split version makes life much easier if you have a large bundle of cables. I can't recall their URL at the moment, but if you search on here or google you should find it.

I reckon the stuff you've seen on American sites is infact "rigging hose", which is used to go from stern to motor, is this what your after?
