Local hydraulic hose shop? I think the fittings are pretty standard, and you'd be bypassing the "marine" markup.

Hi, I would go to Hypro Marine in Lymington. I needed hoses and fittings and went to local hydraulic supplier and price was extortionate and probably over specced. Hypro knew exactly the kit I needed, popped it in the post for me and was less than half the price. I even broke one of the connectors and they sent a new one free of charge. Can't fault them. They will also send the hoses with connectors fitted, ready to install for a small fee.

I have tube from a Baystar kit. Its even marked green and red for some reason. Both tubes are 20 feet long. One end has an olive nut attached the other end you cut to length and put the other olive nut on. Is this what your looking for?

Most likely. Both made by Teleflex.

I tried this route and the hydraulic shop wanted $180 for custom hoses while I was able to get West Marine to price match me a set of 12 ft. Seastar hoses for $95.

They may or may not be be. The Seastar are definitely not "cut to fit". The fittings are hydraulically pressed on each end and not adjustable.
