Blue Sea Weather deck labels

Hello Ribsters,

A quick tinternet search showed me that Mega Marine of Hamble can sell individual Blue Sea switch lables by mail order at only 53p each, great I thought as I need two of them for my weather deck switch pannel.

http://www.marinemegastore.com/find.asp

I proceeded to place my order, 035 Achor light and 327 Nav light, as you proberbly know these lables are smaller than a postage stamp.

I completed my order thro to the check out wearing a big grin until the postage cost popped up 6.95. I feel this is way too expensive for the cost of an evelope and second class stamp and for the time that it takes to pick the order.

Can anybody point me in the right direction of where to get them without being ripped off on postage? If anybody has spares of the above for sale please get in touch.

It's more than likely just an error on the site. Give them a bell or email and I'm sure they will sort it out. If not then they are Harry Bunts!

I spoke with them this afternoon using their excellent "call you back" service.

I told the dude "no way was I paying that postage". After 5 mins on the phone the guy told me he could cut the post to 4.99.

I laughed and told him that his call back must have already cost mega marine more than a reasonable postage cost.....madness

RW, Thats very kind of you.

According to their website above they are available individually at 53p each. They are for the weather deck type switches, label Number 035, Anchor light and 327 Nav Lights.

If you are passing please could get them for me, that would be great but please dont go out of your way.

Let me know here or pm me when/if you get them and I will sought you out with the payment and a SAE.

I LOVE THE POWER OF RIBNET.
