Just got some stuff from Eddie Marine - http://www.eddiemarine.com/ - Stainless marine do the best Jackplate / Lifter I have seen to date which most people use in offshore - http://www.stainlessmarine.com/ Although Bob Irwin had a twin ram one on the boat at Exmouth which looked fantastic.

I think most of the American sites will export and to date I have always got stuff quicker than dealing with British companies! I can Recomend UPS - they really have got it together, but make sure you have the right money if paying the duty by cash - the drivers don't keep change!

Hi All

I've been chatting with a guy called Pat in the states that runs a company called www.wintronelectronics.com he will ship via UPS to the UK anything you wont, i asked him to quote me on the new Hummingbird Matrix 55 he can supply this and fly it over for 267 ok you have the duty on top of that but so far i've only been able to source one for 550 here, its a big difference and as they are made for the US market anyway !!! i've not yet used him so i cant vouch for his reliability but its worth ago IMHO.

Richard

U.S Postal

I have inthe past few days spoken to a number of U.S based Zodiac Dealers. All were more than happy to post to the U.K. I also spoke to a couple of French outfits who were as keen to post out as they were to joining the alliance in the Gulf. Support the Yanks I say ! They're cheaper anyway.
