Just so long as you fly your Q flag when you return to the slipway.

Malthouse- cant you sell them to us for less then 18 - problem solved ! And we can just 'give' you some cash for being a nice chap ?

Or I'm thinking buy this off ebay - the warm feeling of safety - even if useless !

Update

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

My updates- my dealer can only manage 205 all inclusive posted to all addresses from stock. If this matches or works then let me know and I will put you in touch with dealer. Ian

Thanks Ian - much appreciated

Collectively we need to make a decision - god help us

We can choose to buy from a UK supplier - the price will be between 202 - 205 or we can buy through Martin for 179 with special delivery and warrenty and proof of purchase (emailed or posted ) but run the risk of Import Duty taking the price to 215 (this would be the maximum price assuming they valued it correctly and include Royal Mail handling charge )

My personal feelings having tried hard to get a good price everywhere else would be Alderney Marine - so over to you all

Just to clarify - please don't feel obliged to buy - I've had plenty of time on my hands and enjoyed the challenge and if we decide not to go through with this it's no big deal and will of course allow Willks to enjoy his popcorn

Martin please feel free to add anything if needed

McMurdo Fastfind PLB 210 w/GPS 179 inc Special Delivery, warrenty and proof of purchase but excluding possible Import Duty

Knot Yet x 1

As an alternative

McMurdo Fastfind PLB 210 w/GPS 193 inc VAT - collection from Southampton or postage extra - valid for 24hrs

This is not really my area but I spoke to one of our trade suppliers in passing.

193 inc VAT delivered to my office in Southampton.

Locals could collect, rest posted on at cost.

No mention of an imminent price rise, however quotes are only valid for 24 hrs.
