Mountain & Marine in Poynton have a late night opening on Thursday's but they are more for yachties, and at this time of year snow skiers. However, they can get items, if not in stock, for powerboaters. Shipshape is a good stop off point in Hazel Grove on the Rising Sun junction of the A6. They are powerboat people and I have bought most bits from there.
If you need directions just ask.

Yes, Mailspeed are quick and helpful. Compass are good, and have lots of "own brand" stuff.
Do you mean the water-tight bottles like this: http://www.safety-marine.com/sm/prod...pf%5Fid=SM0130
I have one but I'm not 100% confident about the flimsy seal on it (I'm not sure about 25+ a time as well!) so I now have two of these: http://www.compass24.com/cgi-bin/abn...=961030-961040 but they may not attach easily to an A-frame.

HTH!

http://www.allgadgets.co.uk/ag/produ...pf%5Fid=AG3825 is a bit cheaper for the conventional type
those othe ones sem very fairly priced and definitely more A frame friendly

I use the Pain-Wessex Poly bottles, had no problem with leakage or damage, but your right, 25.is a bit much!

Can any one tell me were I can get the cage to mount them on the A-frame?

Thanks

it's not so much that the bottles let in water as opposed to ceating some moisture so things left in em get damp and rusty. I wrap eevrything inside em with cling film now which seems to be enough.
