Outboardspares.net - anyone use them?

As per the title - has or does anyone use outboardspares.net?

I'm placed an order with them and now I'm really wishing I hadn't. Has anyone else had problems with them?

Just starting to wonder when to re-order the parts from somewhere reputable...

In fairness the parts I ordered arrived on Friday, correct parts, all fine. I was told tuesday for delivery origninally and then wed, thurs and finally fri. Was pretty annoying that the parts were so late as I had a very rare quiet week with good weather and was hoping to get out fishing. Big relief to get the parts and the boat was back in the water 2pm Friday.

I went to his workshop to get some bits. He is actually quite a nice guy but in total and utter chaos. I think it his disorganisation rather than any desire to cheat people that gets him in bother. If you do fancy stumping up there to have a toe to toe just a word of warning, he towers over my six four frame and weights at least twenty stone which is mainly muscle. Take some pals.
