Not Enough Rib Accessories

I know the UK is the Rib and Sib capital of the world, although they are used worldwide. They are used quite a bit here in the USA. Can someone please tell me why I can't find any of the great accessories and additions that are found all over the UK, but not find them in the US? If there a supplier here in the US that does not have to special order everything and has stuff in stock? I am not talking about patches. I am talking about things like radar arches that have dive ladders built in. Better options for consoles. Stainless Steel tank holders. Stainless steel rail systems for the bow....etc. If there is such a place, can someone guide me to them? Thanks in advance.

Hello mate a lot of the stainless work is fabricated elsewhere and bespoke to the clients specs with small fabrication shops doing the work. Also not always on the shelf if the boat shop advertises certain types so you have to wait for them to be made
I must add for my SIB I look on kayak sites for some stuff or I make it myself I think if a company took it on and built a reasonable selection they would make a killing. We have a company here called seascrew which is about the best I've seen for overall accessories
