Well, for many years I've had an account with RS but they don't call themselves that. At that time the RS staff told me that they do wish to keep RS free from public access but they had set up a company to handle private orders in the same way as RS and the catalogue is the standard RS one. Electromail plus is the name. Maybe they've opened RS up to us punters now but Electromail still exists and I still use it.
However, I go along with Rogue about the tight tie-wrapping af all services together, RS not always being the best source of marine components and the ability to separate the harness for access in the future. I've lost count of the number of times my harnes was loosened to add unforseen equipment wiring. Re-usable cable ties are a godsend. The double sided velcro has its place but I find it difficult to feed behind cable bunches if the access is not too good. It is though very useful stuff around the boat. Wrap in around yer waterproofs, fix the trailer cable out of the way, bind yer VHF arial to the A frame to limit its movement etc, etc.
