Oh I do like a laugh!!

I haven't found anyone yet who offers this, the best you can do is to find a friendly dealer and negotiate a bit of discount. You won't get much though, the margins are pretty small on parts, 25% at max, so you might get 10% if lucky!

A lot of mech parts such as belts etc are Toyota, but for marinising parts your pretty much stuffed.

Which bit of hose is it, probably nothing special if it's straight one (4" maybe), only a problem if its a moulded shaped one!
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!
