Got old boat bits lying around? - can offer cash, web hosting, donations to charity

I am after various bits for my rib, some more important than others. Doing this on a budget means I am trying to get decent secondhand bits where possible. If you have any of the bits I am after, please pm me with what you want for them.

I can offer hosting packages in lieu of cash (to a higher value of course!) for details of the web hosting I can offer, click here . If you would prefer, for smaller items, I can donate a fixed amount to the charity of your choice (eg, RNLI). Other than that, can do cash.

Bits I am after:

2x Paddles
Pump (To pump up the tubes! )
Anchor/Chain/Warp
Fire Extinguisher
First Aid kit
Bailer
Foghorn (handheld gas canister sort)
General Warps
Steering (to take a 70hp engine)
Fuel tanks
Fuel line
Fuel filter
Johnson remotes

If anybody has replaced the standard console on their 5.4m Navy searider, I would also be interested, provided it's one I can just bolt straight onto the existing spot.

A basic tool kit I will put together myself, and I will buy battery and electrics new, as it saves hassle.

Thanks!

May be worth visiting a boat jumble for some of those bits:

Plan. Should get some good deals.

I think we'll have to stop posting on the forum during the day, people will think us students have nothing to do!

Alex, you're a harsh man. I just looked at that boat jumble website, and, sitting there, laughing at me, was the entry headed Gosport, (15mins from Pompey), and it was YESTERDAY!!!!

Think the Hop farm is probably my best bet.

How much roughly should a brand new steering system for a 70hp engine cost? Cheapest I've found is 80.

Sorry mate, I didn't actually read it, I already knew the address! Its always the way, missing things like that.
What do you mean people will think that we don't do any work, theres no point hiding the fact!
I am not sure about the steering, that sounds about right for teleflex no-feedback, which is what I have.

No Worries Alex, will either go to the hop farm, scrounge, or buy new!

Fair point, students do no work. But, we're the working old people of the future!

With the steering, the mount is cracked and broken, and the steering whell leaves really nasty black residue all over your hands. I'm also not convinced as to it's quality (Ie the actual rod), so I'm thinking it might be better to cut my losses and just get a decent new system.

Have a look on ebay - always laods of cheap boat bits. There's someone on there who does a special deal on a complete steering package.
