Okay all - quick update and not great news unfortunately
According to at least three sellers the price is due to increase at the end of this week by £10.00
Marine Superstore have also confirmed this and the best they can now offer - excluding postage is £195.00
I do have a few more to return calls but many (as previously discovered) will not offer any discount regardless of order number.
So the options currently:
1. Hope someone else comes back with a cracking deal!!
2. Accept the fact - we can't get a good price
3. Go with Martin and run the slight risk that Import Duty maybe charged (even if incurred this will still be the same as MSS inc postage)
4. Someone else have a bright idea!!
Let me know your thoughts - Martin is well versed in shipping stuff to the UK and is aware of all the rules and regulations and their implications - however there is no guarantee that you will not incur some level of import duty.
All in all very frustrating
