Mercury control cables

I need to buy 2 19' Mercury control cables. Where's the best (cheapest) place to buy them either in the Solent area or online?

I should add that I object to paying 30 each for them which is what I was quoted at one place!

if you want the best then you will need to spend upwards of 120 quid for the platinum ones

Not a clue Timaathy. They are off a 5.4 searider. Just swing by my place on your way back from Norfolk, and tell mumsy you want to get into the garage. You'll see them on the wrecked looking searider!
