That's a 2.5", oversized for special applications. If you want a std 2" kit then any merc dealer could supply it no probs

Still 2" though...

Type rigging hose into eBay. There's a place in Norwich that sells it by the mtr. It's yamaha stuff but fits the mercury engine cable entry perfectly
You'd still have to buy the mercury end fittings but may work out cheaper than the full mercury kit....

Plenty on eBay America, cheap but risky? If not
I'm sure Rob at Black dog will be able to supply the fitting.
I made my own deck gland from a plastic deck vent collar and a hypalon "sock" similar to what RibCraft use.
I'll take a photo next time I'm on the boat and post it here.
