Bits and pieces

Didn't know which section to put this in so thought I'd put it here and let the Mod's decide

Advice on where to get a few bits and pieces.
Need to extend the VHF antenna wire. What grade is the wire, is it marine grade stuff?
Need a few meters of flexi fuel line (standard outboard stuff but all I can see to buy is with a bulb already spliced in)
Need different sized grommets for through console fittings.
Now I've come to type it all I've forgotten most of it (blonde moment) so will add more later.
Oh and a money tree.
Any help much appreciated.

Antenna cable - Maplin (3 seasons so far & it's still intact)
Grommets - Ditto up to about 20mm, or any eletrical factor type place.
Fuel hose - all the central scotland Chandlers sell itby th metre, discounts if you buy the whole 100m drum. I think they all do mail order.

As for the money tree, I think it's at the bottom of the third rainbow on the left......

I just got whatever the Marina chandler had in stock when my old pump expired ..... No idea what make or model it is! Most of the "bellows" type are around the 5 or 6 litre mark. - I've seen them anywhere between 12 and 30.

Google will probabaly give a better answer than that!
