Anybody got one of these, or an adjustable one?

If you mean the bar that comes standard with Mariner/Mercury outboards then I have one spare. I can't check how long it is until tomorrow morning.

15.00 posted?

Thanks Sam, but it'll probably be too long. Please check it though and if it is 10.5" then I'll have it.

It is 10.5 inches from centre to centre of each thread.

Right, just checked and 11" will be too long, unfortunately.

It needs to be 10.5" max, but 10" would be better.

Have you tried Martin or Matt at Gower marine, they had about three crates full of different types that they got when Celtic marine closed.

Cheers Tom

I haven't yet. Will probably pop down there on the weekend and may as well call in to see if Jeff at Boathunters has anything too.

Cheers biff - I think the shape will be wrong, 'cos it needs quite a sharp step down from the yoke to clear the underside of the pan. I'm trying to work around it with an arm I have here, but if it doesn't work out, I'll drop you a line.
